One of our clients recently reflected upon their future reason for existing, and decided to start preparing for a more sustainable tomorrow. As they had already many of the products and technologies in house, but not yet the organizational strength to truly address the market’s dynamics, they decided to set up a new, dedicated team. Yet how would they structure this team, and what would their key roles and interactions be?
That’s when they took our Igneos team on board. Together with the client, we started connecting people internally to build a clear view on what the organization believed this new team should or could be doing. From that understanding, we extracted the key processes required and the possible ambitions to strive for, with each of these processes. Bringing the detailed ambitions, the clear goals as defined with top management and the detailed process design together, we crafted an organizational structure to meet the expectations and bring the required additional strength to the client’s company.
Looking back on this project, we feel that, while it was extraordinary in many ways, it especially is in these two elements: discretion and community-building. Through the process, we needed to be very discreet, as the new organizational structure could not be know before the Board had validated it and communicated it to the company’s owners and workforce representatives. All the while thought, we worked with the people impacted by the change to develop the underlying processes and interactions needed to make the new structure work. We approached this balancing act with a lot of kindness and understanding, as we ourselves have been in organizations that underwent such changes. Empathy is key, in any project, but especially in projects such as this one.
Another element is community building: this new team came from a larger organization, but to make their plans and efforts work, they needed to connect very quickly with all people in all their markets and local organizations. To do so, we introduced a special unit within the new team that has as their main role to connect all people and bring them together around a shared vision for the future and new technologies and products, including training and knowledge sharing.
