Gain perspective of your organization as a system
Despite the standard use of org charts and other schematics, many organizations struggle to get a clear picture of their employees, the work they do and how that work supports their business strategy.
Even basic elements such as job titles can mean different things in different locations — a VP in the US may do the same job as a director in the UK. So, when you begin to look at specific activities in a particular role, things start to get complicated:
> Are those activities being duplicated or
split across roles?
> Do employees have skills that aren’t
> Are senior managers spending time on
activities that belong to their previous
Working out how to improve productivity by streamlining work is complex. And introducing place and time dependencies within a hybrid working model complicates things even further.
This level of complexity can appear daunting at first. But if you want to ensure your hybrid working strategy contributes to business productivity, you’ll need to get into the detail and start looking at your workforce data.
