The senior management team at The Workshop was interested in gaining a better understanding of the impact of organizational dynamics on the performance and productivity of the business. By developing this insight, they expected to be able to identify informal leaders, organizational bottlenecks and silos.
The Workshop were also committed to ensuring that knowledge and expertise within the business was captured, shared and retained to support employee and business development. They shared our ethos that the retention of knowledge and skills is critical for the success of any organisation, especially one which operates in such a dynamic and competitive sector.
This project with The Workshop provides an example of the importance of understanding and evaluating the way that organisations work at an informal level in a new reality characterized by volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. Our Organizational Network Analysis empowers your company to operate in a more agile fashion, leveraging the influence of informal leaders to maximize business success.
