Organizational Effectiveness and Readiness
Our Starting Point"
A significant component of our client engagements
require assessing the social, technical, and
structural (STS) interactions of individual,
work group, or division characteristics as they
mutually relate to the organizational challenge
Sounds abstract . . . . . so what does it mean?
These characteristics generally entail organizational
behaviors attributed to biological, psychological,
behavioral, and cultural and climate traits;
those tools, processes, techniques, and methods
that result in products and services; and, the
framework and interface within which the social
and technical domains interact.
Our assessments provide an independent viewpoint,
focusing on the issues and interventions using
specific education, training, and experience
with STS systems. Understanding your organization’s
key attributes, drivers, and system dynamics
better enable you to overcome
challenges in five major areas:
- Assessing readiness for change/ implementing
change and facilitating transition
- Getting organization sectors to work more
- Coaching executives, managers, and employees
to perform their roles more effectively
- Identifying and overcoming barriers and
derailers (e.g., communication and workflow)
- Identifying, addressing, and resolving conflict
between/ among individuals, groups, and departments
These five challenge areas are vitally significant
to the effective focus, functioning, productivity,
and performance of nearly any organization.
Systemic STS assessment results enable executives
to clearly understand the fundamental, explanatory,
and contributing causes of an organization’s
condition . . . . . . this knowledge in turn
is used to develop the most practical, timely,
and cost effective interventions needed to enact
and sustain the desired change.
