The art of leadership

An organization’s ability to learn, and translate that learning into action rapidly, is the ultimate competitive advantage !

greythinThe term “organization” casts a wide net. Key topics include headquarters organization, HR management, change management and shared services. Our consultants help in addressing any and all of these issues. For example, to what extent does decentralizing affect headquarters functions and managing structures?

Our specialists know how to design headquarters, analyze the management situation and shape the right management concept. HR management plays an important role as central functions are reorganized. We take a closer look at your HR department and improve the efficiency of your HR management.

When fundamental organizational changes are introduced, not all initiatives to get employees on board prove successful. Change management initiatives often lack a clear goal, fail to consider the complexity of the change process and do not succeed in mobilizing the entire company. IMG helps identify fields where action is required and then implement the appropriate solutions.

  • Decision and organization diagnostic
  • Organizational design and restructuring
  • Decision effectiveness
  • Board and CXO advising, mentoring and self-assessment
  • HR strategy, function design and performance metrics
  • Search and Selection
  • Talent management and leadership supply
  • Measures and incentives
  • High-performance culture
  • Change Management
  • CSR
An effective organization can give companies the edge that sets them apart from the competition. The payoff can be significant: Research from IMG Knowledge Institute has shown that high performers report total shareholder returns nearly six percentage points higher and their employees are far more likely to recommend the company as a place to work—a powerful indicator of engagement. The secret: decisions. The best performers make better decisions, make them more quickly and execute them more effectively. And they don’t spend too much or too little effort in the process.

IMG has a comprehensive tool kit and team of global experts to help companies break down organizational barriers and address decision inefficiencies to get to high performance. Working jointly with our clients, we start with a focus on which decisions matter most to overall performance. Small, everyday decisions can matter as much as big strategic ones. We then build integrated organizational systems that are explicitly geared to support these key decisions. We go beyond the “hard” issues of structure, roles and processes to addresses the “soft” elements such as people, behaviors and culture.

Our ultimate objective is to embed new capabilities and repeatable processes so that people at all levels can decide and deliver, again and again.

Structure follows strategy

greythin“Structure follows strategy” is a popular catchphrase at organizations. The structure of an organization must support the objectives that the organization sets for itself, but in many cases it seems to be the other way round.

A changed strategy often requires adjustments to the structure and governance of the organization. For this reason it is important not only to hold the strategy up to the light frequently, but also to regularly pose the question of whether the current structure and governance are still the most effective.

Based on our broad practical experience, IMG adheres to a few general starting points for organizational development. In our view there is no such thing as an ideal organizational structure, for instance, and there is not just one suitable structure per organization. A structure and steering model are always temporary and are a means, not an end, and the people who work within the structure are the most important aspect. In addition, change to structure must follow the strategy and always be externally driven.

These starting points form the guiding principle in IMG’s approach, which is also characterized by thorough conceptual models, a hands-on mentality on the part of our consultants, and finally ‘co-creation.’ This last point means that we work extremely closely with clients in any process of organizational change, because as we said, change to structure starts with the people who work in it.

A changed strategy often requires adjustments to the structure and governance of the organization. For this reason it is important not only to hold the strategy up to the light frequently, but also to regularly pose the question of whether the current structure and governance are still the most effective.
