Development of the Organisation
“We need to change the organisation!”
The statement above represents how many organisational leaders think when they experience that their organisation is no longer effective or responsive to current or future demands from the outside world. Often, there is a vague idea within the organisation about what is needed, but exactly what needs to be done and exactly how it should be done, is rarely clearly conceptualized.
In working with Organisational Development, Human House focuses on these questions. Four central elements need to be accomplished in order to make the process succeed:
- A process must be divided into stages and the stakeholders must be included
- Well documented analysis methods must be used to assess the existing organisation and the challenges of the organisation. To think systemically and of the organisation as a whole is crucial.
- The right solutions and initiatives must fit the problem and the prerequisites of the organisation.
- It is crucial that the process is carefully managed so that the given change(s) can be properly implemented and embedded.
Human House monitor the processes from start to finish and we can take the role as both experts or process consultants. Our role and involvement in different stages of the process depends on the specific organisation and the specific needs of the organisation.
Examples of services from Human House:
- Short pre-examinations in collaboration with the organisation in order to clarify the extent of the assigned job, and define the process and stages of intervention.
- Analysis and feedback-processes of the existing organisation – e.g. with a focus on the effectiveness of the organisation.
- Assisting organisations in clarification of possible future scenarios and the choice of solution models and other inventions.
- Counseling and support regarding internal processes of the organisation, including the job of the leader.
- Support for implementing interventions.
- Development of skills and competencies, including courses, ‘train the trainer’ process and further.
- Evaluations and follow-up on both short and long-term interventions and results.
