An intro to the complexity of organizations
When you’re smaller
When you’re smaller, everything is within reach. You know every person on the team and exactly what they’re doing. alignment, resourcing and focus are easy, but it doesn’t last. With success comes growth, and with growth comes complexity. The tools that get you to a certain size won’t take you to the next level.
The inflection point
Complexity scales with you. At a certain size, leaders lose visibility of what happens on the ground and businesses reach an inflection point where the symptoms of scale become full-blown fires. Culture, communication, service delivery, profitability, staff satisfaction and organizational alignment all suffer.
Working harder doesn’t work
Organizations are losing millions of dollars every year from poor work design. When you don’t align functions, positions and people, pain occurs. Although everyone is working harder than ever, there’s no clear alignment on exactly what the right things to work on are. Every new hire becomes less effective at alleviating the pressure.
How do you adapt mid-flight?
Many leaders feel like they’re spinning hundreds of plates in the air. They know what needs to be done to navigate change, and execute their winning moves. But mapping the detail and getting teams onto the same page is difficult and time-consuming.
