Organisation & People

 

Expert support in organisation, implementation and governance 
 
Effective organisation, leadership and engagement of people are the keys to successful delivery of chosen goals and plans. Owen Morris can help make sure you have these keys.
 
Organisational design
 
We’ll work with you to make sure your organisation is well-designed and forms the optimum ‘framework’ in which people can work and give their best. Key factors include, for example: 
 
  •         Overall structure & role definitions                                      
  •         Senior management team
  •         People – type, skills, attitudes, motivation
  •         Culture & values
  •         Relationships & communication flows between people
  •         Use of technology & physical environment
  •         How the organisation stays flexible and responds to change 
Staff engagement, leadership and management
 
We’ll help you put in place robust methods for motivating and inspiring your staff to deliver the results you want.   Key factors include, for example:
 
  •         Everyone understands the organisation’s mission and objectives
  •         Staff can feel a sense of purpose and meaning in the work they do
  •         Staff have clear goals and measures of success for their job
  •         People feel motivated and encouraged by their managers
  •         People are held to account regularly for their results
  •         People have adequate support and training
  •         People are effectively rewarded and recognised for their performance 
Performance measurement & reporting
 
We can help you put in place suitable mechanisms for keeping track of everyone’s performance and comparing to planned or expected levels. Various management models and frameworks exist e.g. Balanced Scorecard and Owen Morris has developed its own approach based on these.
 
Organisational governance
 
This is not only about ensuring legal compliance but establishing sound processes for strong leadership and development of an organisation.   For example: role and functioning of the Board and reporting committees, roles of senior officers, skills and characteristics of Board members, planning and decision-making processes, and resource and risk management processes.   Working with legal associates, where needed, we can review and develop best-practice governance arrangements for your organisation.
