Orgdesign Works helps organizations to design and implement more effective ways of working.
There are many talented, motivated people working in organizations today. That’s why there’s huge potential for corporations to make a positive impact in the world. But being part of a large company feels bureaucratic and slow. Hierarchy seems to prevent us from working productively. Even senior leaders experience this. The traditional hierarchical model is no longer the most effective and efficient way. We need to implement new approaches and different ways of working.
The way you design your organization and enable people to work together productively and purposefully will be the key to success. Orgdesign Works provides consulting, executive-interim and coaching to support you to transform the way you work.
Since stepping away from employment in a large company and learning about alternatives to established organization models, I’m now on a mission to help companies design organizations for greater impact.
As a leader, I’ve often experienced how bureaucracy and politics slow down progress. I used to think,
“That’s just the way it is. Organizations are complex. If you want to be successful around here, you should learn how to navigate the complexity.”
Then I asked myself how things could work differently.
I studied different ways of working and discovered that the traditional organization hierarchy is not the most effective design for businesses. It’s not even the most efficient. This led me to search for alternatives to the traditional model.
It doesn’t mean there is a one-size-fits-all solution that everyone should implement. Each business must design their own approach to fit their strategy and purpose.
My work in big companies convinced me that corporations can be a force for good in the world.
I know that people working in the corporate world are amazing, smart and passionate. I believe the best change happens when everyone participates.
I founded Orgdesign Works because I want to contribute to designing the organization of the future.
