Your organisational structure is the vehicle that delivers your strategy, services and performance

It is critical that a business should know what its employees do on a daily basis – having a suitable organisational and reporting structure reflects directly on the effectiveness and success of the company. Performance-driven organisations are focusing on their core business in order to utilise their human resources to maximum effect.

Efforts to improve performance of group service delivery should begin by looking at an organisation’s strategy and its operational processes. Modifying the design and structure of an organisation can help realise specific organisational goals – as the strategic management saying goes: ”structure follows strategy”.
