Organizations are the place where we work together. Dozens, hundreds, thousands of people bring their different skills together and accomplish together what individuals could never do individually. Organizations are complex systems that are constantly renewing themselves, adapting to new environmental conditions while remaining as they are.
Anyone who wants to develop organizations in a targeted manner has to contend with this stability. We help with our outside perspective and design interventions that offer a new approach. We foster the collective ability to learn and thus help to adapt to complex, rapidly changing environments. We coordinate the further development of organizational design with the development of cooperation and provide development impulses for the people involved. Together with our clients, we ensure communication that activates the power of different participants and allows new things to emerge.
When organisations grow, they have to change fundamental patterns again and again. A start-up functions fundamentally differently in the founding phase than in the scaling phase, when the market is being conquered. A company with a high degree of maturity differs significantly from one that has just developed different functions. Each growth phase places different demands on the people involved. Shaping change in such a way that new patterns build on old strengths ensures the long-term success of the company
The further development of existing patterns also becomes critical to success when companies experience major changes in their environment. If a medium-sized company want to grow internationally and become global market leaders, they have to relearn. A energy company that has to leave nuclear power, oil and gas behind needs a completely new set of skills in order to be successful in the volatile renewable energy market. The drug manufacturer that wants to become a provider of personalized medical solutions must leave yesterday's ways of working behind. The major changes require new forms of cooperation. New approaches need to be coordinated. This often means more complexity and more responsibility for everyone. But this is not always welcome. In our view, the key to successful organizational development lies in the triad of organizational design, the personal development of the people and the realignment of collaboration. When everyone grows beyond themselves, a new form of collaboration emerges that takes the whole organization to a new level. More agile, more flexible, more process-oriented or more empowered; an organization does not become that simply by taking a top-down decision.
