Every company set to succeed must have a clear system that defines the activities, rules, and responsibilities that serve a specific purpose.
Without the proper organizational structure, your business will be going down a rocky road to growth.
But when you’re just starting a business, picking out the right type of structure for your business is like choosing a new car. You need it to be sturdy enough to take you anywhere you want to go. However, there are different types of organizational structures: functional, divisional, flatarchy, and matrix structures.
So how do you pick the best possible one for your business?
This is where our structuring experts come in.
Our structuring process starts with communication and active listening. We listen to you, identify your requirements, and define your company’s goals. The vision you have for your company is an essential component for choosing the right type of business structure that serves it. Your corporation’s structure will be the blueprint that shows you how to achieve that vision day by day.
To get as much information as possible on how you envision your business, there are a number of questions you will need to have clear answers for:
What’s the best way for your employees to work together to achieve your company’s goals?
What do you think the decision-making process should look like within your organization?
What level of authority is required to make decisions that serve your business’s best interests?
What type of culture would you like your company to foster?
The answers to these questions will give our professionals great insight on whether to pick a centralized or decentralized structure, to begin with.
After working out all the details, our structuring experts advise you on the best structure to adopt according to your goals.
We start defining the chain of command and laying out your organizational chart.
We determine how information and decisions flow within your company.
We put in place all the roles and we balance responsibilities.
We fill in the people and define performance levels and potential areas of improvement.
Small businesses usually have a different structure than large ones. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider the future while planning your current structure, because as your company grows, you will need to have a solid foundation. Not to mention that today’s structure will influence tomorrow’s goals.
After completing the necessary planning, we will assist you in successfully implementing your new structure to boost business performance and provide clarity for everyone at every level.
The right company structure can help you:
The bottom line here is, there is no one best structure. The best one for you depends on the type of business, the industry you operate in, and your vision.
