FRACTURING your organizational design: THE FISSURED WORKPLACE

Posted by David Creelman

Oct 6, 2015 9:00:00 AM

In past blogs we have explored the "how tos" and evolving approaches towards the process of organizational design.  In this first blog of a five part series on innovative and emerging alternatives for the organization of the workplace, organizational design expert David Creelman explores the fissured organization. 

When you walk into a brand-name hotel, who are the people behind the counter? You probably think they are hotel employees; after all, they are wearing that brand on their uniforms. However, chances are they are not that brand's employees; they probably work for an intermediate firm like White Lodging, which runs hotel operations for famous chains like Marriott and Hilton. If you walk out of one hotel to a competitor across the street, you might well find that the workers at the new hotel are also White Lodging employees.

In past blogs we've written about sales organizations, the sales process and using org chart design tools like Organimi to help organize and optimize your sales processes.  This was one of the reasons we introduced our Planner Version of Organimi with our Version 4 release this summer....specifically for sales and client service reps who cover many accounts, and want to focus on the key stakeholders in each of their accounts, without needing all of the "down to the ground" details of the organizational structure.

As the summer draws to a close we were drawn to a blog post this week by Brook Manville on HBR – You Need A Community, Not A Network

 

As Manville notes, “you can’t mobilize people to collaborate and create something of lasting value simply by connecting them via the web. To get serious results from a network, you need commitment and a continuity of relationships among the participants".

At Organimi we're keen to get as much user feedback as we can.  

We ask about the challenges you are facing in creating and using org charts when you create your accounts.  And we appreciate the fact that so many of you provide it.

We encourage people to complete user surveys.  Survey response rates are typically low, especially when there is no obvious "reward" for completing them.  But we appreciate the fact that so many in the Organimi community do take the time to give us survey input. If you want, you can participate in our latest survey here.
