Organisational change during corporate renewal

Organisational change objectives

Reorganisation should ensure successful business transformation or turnaround through structural alignment with strategy, and overcome organisational inertia and confusion.

Structural change

Horizontally, the organisation should be restructured in alignment with strategy and the chosen value chain segments, which also reduces complexity and confusion.

Vertically, delayering and flattening of structures not only reduce costs, but make business transformation or turnaround strategy implementation more effective.  

At the top, separation of  the board and management enhances leadership effectiveness. 

Reconstituted board membership in accordance with King 2 principles is often a good move to ensure good corporate governance. 

Staffing and roles change

The redefined organisational structure require appropriate staffing with redefined roles and responsibilities.  If appropriate, it also requires redefined incentives, and terms and conditions of employment.

Style and culture change

A business transformation or turnaround requires programmes aimed at changing values and behaviours to mobilise the organisation around the transformation / turnaround plan.

Key ingredients include leadership alignment, team building and team effectiveness programmes, building of commitment, and improved communication and morale.

Building capabilities and competencies

Restaffing should be complemented by coaching of teams and individuals, training and skills transfer.
