The increasingly dispersed nature of organizations and diverse digital workforce are important factors to reimagine how to run a high performance organization.
An enterprise is never going to be architected and designed like a building, it is dynamic, keeps evolving, with its own set of principles and practices to achieve its purpose.
An organization at any scale that can retain an overall sense of vision and purpose, can communicate effectively, improve continuously: From top down, to make a smooth business transformation, the objective assessment of business leadership, strategic planning, talent pool, process effectiveness, will help to make scientific resource alignment, overcome organizational friction to achieve the expected results consistently. It helps to reflect on its own limitations honestly and respond to change dynamically. It’s also important to set updated rules and break down overly rigid hierarchies. It is an assessment of employee engagement, meaning associated with their work flexibility, professional growth and freedom to increase people centricity and realize business purpose.
An organization needs to enhance business rules, harness communication, and improve problem-solving effectiveness: Principle, purpose, and progress are inter-related with each other. Organizations will be able to let themselves think not only of what exists , how they exist in the business world today, but also how to keep themselves relevant, for the long run, develop information consciousness to improve business responsiveness and resilience. Business problems are complex today, it’s important to have interdisciplinary knowledge, gain the contextual understanding of the interconnected pieces of tough issues underlying the surface, dig through the cause-effect by taking a structural approach. The purpose of setting principles is to streamline problem-solving logic, enhance business communication, and build an effective digital workplace in which collaboration and sharing are the norm, people are encouraged to pursue autonomy and purpose.
The increasingly dispersed nature of organizations and diverse digital workforce are important factors to reimagine how to run a high performance organization. With abundant information and effective digital technologies, the dynamic design allows the organization to morph into living conditions and organizational capacities change to allow a better fit for the purpose. Leadership needs to be more purposeful, inclusive and innovative to encourage transformative changes, and business management has to become more holistic, to reach the next level of business maturity.
