Framework for Organisation Design

The majority of your organisation’s cost are embedded in human resources. The total human resource cost is, in turn, determined by the number of positions and the way they are connected to each other.

The number of positions and the connecting structures are, in turn, determined by the operational value chain and the tasks to be performed to deliver to your customer.

Over time, as your organisation changes, grows or downsizes, this configuration is likely to move out of alignment. This is when your overhead costs start to soar.

The only real professional solution is to realign your HR structures within your operational value chain. Evalex assists organisations with this realignment by examining the value chain and organisational imperatives, then defining the key tasks required, followed by the level of each task, and then combining all the data to create positions and reporting relationships.

Organisation Design Workshop

Evalex has developed a solution to organisation design consisting of a combination of a robust approach, a slick process and highly skilled, experienced consultants who fully understand the need to deliver on their objectives.

Inherent inefficiencies in design are always unearthed. The proposed solutions will always result in a more cost effective organisation.

The process we follow during the organisation design workshop is based on the best organisation design philosophies from leading business schools, adapted and modified through our experience of what works best and fastest, to present you with a highly efficient and scientific outcome for the best design for your organisation.


Organisation Design Product

The outcome of the organisation design workshop described in the systems section, based on the theoretical frameworks discussed in the framework section, leads to a very specific product that may have far reaching implications for organisation design changes.

The exercise results in a new organisation structure with job titles, reporting lines and job grading. It then becomes the CEO and executive committee’s role to gradually migrate to the new design.

The key aspect of the new design is a structure aligned with your company’s targeted delivery of products and solutions to the market. It is designed to include tasks and deliverables aligned with the stratified systems level of work theory, which allows you to undertake a major clean-up of management levels.

When combining this solution with the Evalex Leadership Assessment, another alignment of managers to job complexity takes place, which has a positive impact on your cost structure. Once managers are aligned with job levels according to competencies, you will find out who is being overpaid or underpaid in relation to their human capital value to your organisation.
