Does your company have these Disorganization problems?

Disorganized THINGS:

Overwhelm from information overload ... Missing data and reports ... Lost customers... Ambiguous communication ... Sloppy logistics ‹ stuff not in the right place at the right time ... Cluttered desks, buildings, and equipment...

Disorganized ACTIVITIES:

Mismanagement of resources ... Actions out of sequence ... Working on the wrong things ... Confusion ... Employees focussed on trivial problems while ignoring important areas...

Disorganized PEOPLE:

Staffers embroiled in bureaucratic turmoil, disconnected from the organization and its goals ... Meetings and events start late and ramble aimlessly forever ... Employee resentment festers into covert sabotage...

These problems sound familiar don't they? No, I haven't been reading your mail!

Those business problems are widespread... but what can you do about them?

The basic ideas of "getting organized" are easy enough to understand. However, you must think carefully about how to organize your company. This requires more information.

There is a continuum of organizational structures between functional hierarchies and flat(ter) project teams. In this free business planning chapter, I discuss various approaches to designing organizational structures. Generally speaking, your Strategic Objectives will determine the structure of your organization. I also give some examples of how strategy impacts organizational structure.

In general, you can structure by:

* FUNCTIONS by grouping common activities into departments / areas / units.

* GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION when you need to supply products or services to several areas.

* COMMON ACTIVITIES in different regions or areas, each one a model of the home office.

* PRODUCTS OR SERVICES when different products and services, including quantity and complexity determine your company's activities.

* PROCESSES AND TECHNOLOGY when your complex processes require grouping of certain activities of the company.

Of course, you can combine various organizational structures to suit your particular mission, strategies, and tactics.

NOTE: In various issues of my eZine, "Profitable Venture Tactics" (PVT), I have discussed how you can develop your Strategic Objective, Organizational Strategy, and Org Charts. For best results you must develop these in order -- before you develop your Position Contracts.

1. Strategic Objective

2. Organizational Strategy

3. Org Charts

(For more information on these topics, see PVTs 2, 3, 4, 9, 11, 22, 29, 36, 42, 58, 60, 65, 81)


You CAN organize your business with a planning tool to get rid of confusion, turmoil, and discord!

Today we see various organizational trends trying to adapt to fast-changing markets. If you're involved in a fast-changing market your success probably depends on fast reaction to competition, plus ongoing need for:

* Fast response to changing customer preferences requiring shorter cycles for design-to-market

* Custom orders and getting it right the first time with high quality

* Accurate order filling, expedited delivery, and personalized service

* Creativity, innovation, and fast adaptation of new technologies

Further, new market dynamics are motivating people to adapt new strategies in organizational design, such as:

* Leaner, flatter, decentralized structures that may decrease work fragmentation, cut bureaucratic overhead, and compress separate tasks into jobs that can be performed by one person or a small team

* Process teams and cross functional work groups

* Lean staffing of support functions

* Partnerships with key suppliers and outsourcing

* Employee empowerment with associated accountability for results

Some of these business strategies may give you low-cost productivity gains, increased creativity, and improved customer satisfaction.

To (re)engineer your organization, you should implement the following:

___ Develop a flow chart of your whole business process, including interfaces with other value-chain activities.

___ Assess each process to determine its strategy-critical value.

___ Simplify strategy-critical processes first.

___ Determine which processes you can automate to economic advantage.

___ Evaluate pros and cons of outsourcing various processes.

___ Design structure for performing remaining in-house activities.

You will learn such things as:

* How to use strategy-driven approaches to developing your organization structure.

* Why hierarchical structures may be a less flexible when you need.

* Why you may find it difficult to transfer knowledge across department boundaries -- and how to avoid this problem.

* Why employees may get the impression that managers are "empty suits" who contribute little or nothing.

* How you can often be more effective by creating a separate project team than "loaning" employees intermittently -- but you must know when. (And, how this can alter your organizational structure.)

When you read this free chapter, you will examine typical management structures and explore some business planning strategies for your own organization.

In this free chapter, I distill many ideas from my book by the same name. The valuable time and money saving information in this free chapter made a tremendous positive change to my approach to business. It helped me build my entire organizational structure.

These same benefits are now available to you because you now have my experience to guide you.

The purpose of this chapter is to give you this information I've proven to be valuable. Without it, you could spend many years to discover what I know now. With my assistance, you can be clear about the correct steps to take from the start so you can quickly organize your business and get rid of confusion, turmoil, and discord!

You will be "ahead of the game!"

OK Mike, what's the catch? Why the free chapter? Why all the valuable information that I can use without a dime's expense?

Well, I've spent a small fortune and many years to learn what I've learned (and continue to learn) from the best of the best. While I could never give back, I can give forward, based on the dictum, "Give and ye shall receive."

This is my way to introduce you to the value of doing business with my company. Plus, I have other products, services, and workshops that you may wish to obtain to increase your knowledge and business success. And, when I officially release the book I'll let you know so you can decide whether you want a copy.

BONUS included with your free business planning system!

With your free chapter, I will also send you a FREE subscription to Profitable Venture Tactics (PVT). (You can cancel any time with one click.) I pack this weekly eZine with tools you can use to maximize your business and personal gains... to help you create favorable outcomes in our dicey world.
