Organisation Effectiveness in the New Way of Working

Unlocking Organisation, Teams and People Potential to Respond to Change

A wave of change is happening in our world that is making the “way we work” almost unrecognisable today – and no-one knows where it will be tomorrow. Organizations are having to pivot and strategise, adapt and change in new ways.

To succeed, business leaders and people managers need to discover new ways of organising, performing, and leading, along with new approaches to sourcing, developing, and engaging people.

TalentAlign OD is a new style of Agile OD facilitation / coaching / consulting partner, redesigned for a world where constant change, complexity, and uncertainty are the new normal.

The Transformation Challenge

Is your organisation facing, or in the process of, one or more of the BIG FIVE transformations impacting businesses today?

  1. Digital Transformation – using digital technologies to create new — or modify existing — business processes, cultures, and customer experiences to meet changing business and market requirements
  2. Agile Transformation – transforming an organisation’s form or nature to one that can embrace and thrive in a flexible, collaborative, self-organising, fast changing environment
  3. Business Model Transformation – rethinking and reforming how organisations create value, and will create value in the future
  4. Remote Worker Transformation – enabling and empowering people to work efficiently and effectively from remote locations as a critical enabler of business and economic continuity
  5. HR Transformation – rethinking the way of working and organising of the HR function that facilitates responsiveness and adaptiveness of activities and structures, and enables operational HR processes to become automated and data-driven.

Each of these transformations needs an organisation that is capable of learning and adapting fast enough to get it done.

TalentAlign OD helps organisations meet this challenge.

As a business leader, owner, manager, HR consultant, or committed employee, you need your organisation to run as well and efficiently as possible.  A good way to achieve this is through focussed Organisation Development, otherwise known as OD.

Could your organisation benefit from:

  • Higher efficiency and increased productivity?
  • Improved success rate of change initiatives?
  • More flexible roles that enable the organisation to be more dynamic and responsive?
  • Performance Management that ensures future performance rather than looking back at past performance?
  • Careers that inspire and attract and retain the best talent?

Agile OD is one of the instruments that can help get you there and TalentAlign OD can assist you on the journey.

We have, over the past 16 years, helped many organisations improve retention, engagement, and attract the appropriate skills by introducing modern Organisation Development ideas and systems

What is Organisation Development?

“Organisational Development (OD) is a critical and science-based process that helps organisations build their capacity to change and achieve greater effectiveness by developing, improving, and reinforcing people strategies, structures, and processes”

“OD is the practice of planned, systemic change in the processes, beliefs, attitudes and values of employees for individual and organisational growth.”

The purpose of OD is to enable an organisation to better respond and adapt to industry/market changes and technological advances.
There’s a good chance you’re already doing some OD work without even realising it.  If you’re creating great teams and giving them the conditions in which to thrive, and tweaking your systems to improve their effectiveness or resolve problems – that is OD work.  But real OD needs to be Strategic, not tweaking.

What is Agile OD?

Agile OD uses short, iterative innovation processes, focused on the creation of value and the priorities of the organisation.  It compresses years of learning in just a few months, accelerating the transformation via integrated agile teams, massive collaboration as a value creation model, and putting the emphasis on the development of transformative leadership and the adoption of agile methodologies and new digital ways of doing business

Agile OD in Practice – How we Work

When working with you we follow a typical iterative, collaborative process.

Based on Lean Change Management principles, our process is set up to answer the key change management questions:

  • Where are we now?
  • Where do we want to go? And why?
  • How ready are we to get started?
  • What practical steps do we need to take?
  • How do we manage the journey?
  • How do we keep moving forward?
  • How do we avoid mistakes?

Objectives of Organisation Development

The most common objectives of OD for a business are to:

  • Make changes to the strategy, structure and/or process of an entire system of an organisation, department, work group, individual role or job
  • Manage planned change in a flexible way to allow further change in the future as new information becomes available
  • Institutionalise change to reinforce and make change sustainable, and ultimately
  • Improve organisational effectiveness.
