Health & Design
Organisation Design & Organisation Health are different but linked concepts.
Organisation Design: describes the arrangement of activity within an organisation and its alignment to delivery of the organisation, mission, objectives & strategy. Activities can be described as core, support & supply, and the alignment of activities has a significant impact on organisational performance & the achievement of organisational objectives.
Organisation Health: describes the efficiency in the way organisations function. This would describe the way an organisation delegates accountability to jobs, speed of decision making & empowerment.
The number of layers of management & spans of control in an organisation is an indicator of organisational health.
The global job catalogue is a valuable tool for analysing the health & design of an organisation. Because jobs are allocated to managerial & professional career ladders & families, & allocated to complexity levels, the global job catalogue is an enabler of understanding & analysing organisational health & organisational design.
