Organizational Assessment & Development

Category:

Assessing and developing organizations are leadership tasks frequently avoided due to basic misconceptions of how to do them, or because it is a distraction from real work.

Until someone invents an autopilot function for an organization, the leader’s role will always be like that of the pilot, making continuous adjustments to the aircraft to safely navigate from departure to destination. Like the pilot maintaining airspeed, altitude and heading, and keeping the aircraft in balanced flight, this tool points you toward your Strategy, Structure, People, and Leadership, and describes how to maintain, organize, and balance.

Our Approach

This approach to Organizational Assessment & Development and our associated resources will reveal where you need to adjust, and help you determine how to make those adjustments with the specific purpose of achieving your organization’s bottom line objectives.

Purpose

The Organizational Assessment & Development Model helps you establish a plan tailored to your organization’s unique characteristics and designed to attain the results you are trying to achieve.

How? Shackleton Group approaches that development plan by first assessing the existence and effectiveness of key aspects within the five pivotal elements common to all organizations. The model below provides a brief description of each of those elements.
