"Organisation design is an area where HR should be adding value and we need to invest in building capability."


The context for organisations today is one of complexity, interconnectedness, and digital disruption. Large global organisations have to maintain competitiveness by achieving a balance between pursuing growth, innovation, and responsiveness to customers on the one hand, and maximising efficiency and the benefits of operating at a global scale on the other. They also have to rethink business strategies and operating models as we shift towards a digital economy. Having an effective organisation design that allows firms to sense and respond rapidly to market changes is an important source of sustainable competitive advantage. Organisation design is a critical capability that organisations need to build in order to be adaptable in the face of today’s – and tomorrow’s – challenges.
