Objective measureable principles in design of company strategy, structure, teams and deployment of people


3rd May 2018


Business, finance, engineering and other sciences in the business environment have always been in a position to explain the state of and contribution to the organisation in numerical terms, be it profit ratios, production volumes, tool strength, etc. Organisation Development and Human Resources in general, except for remuneration, which is finance, has mostly been based on theory, professional opinion, perception, preference and sometimes even sentiment. This has always put OD and HR on the defense when it comes to demonstrating impact and value.


Ongoing research and development has delivered outcomes through which objective strategy development, objective work role and organisation structural designs, objective team and people empowerment and deployment can be validated in numbers and percentages. This validation enables the opportunity to compare and contrast, thereby facilitating appropriate and focused change for optimal organisation delivery and achievement. Information is no longer based on subjective opinion, perceptions or a preference without objective substantiation. It is based on delivery, supported by mathematical principles, expressed in numbers and percentages.This information demonstrates areas of risks in design, guides required development, whilst keeping tabs on progress, towards optimal value delivery and success.


OD and HR can now unequivocally move into the realm of objective, scientific, mathematically based frameworks. They can now put hard numbers on the table to clearly demonstrate areas of risk and/or strength that could make or break the organisation, and therefore needs to be developed, changed and/or managed accordingly. This is also in line with the drive towards raising standards within these professions.
