LP22 Using Organizational Forums
when a Leadership Practice is not present or working in your organization...
you will not be able to BEST organize your organization
Using organizational forums is the management process that establishes and deploys a systematic series of regular meetings, throughout the organization, to communicate and share information. Forums are arenas for problem solving. The sharing of information is a means to conduct and update operations. Forum participants consistently work to improve the quality of the forums.
Professor Kenneth Mackenzie, one of the world's leading experts on leadership and organizational design, has defined 29 Leadership Practices (LP) that are essential to a successful organization.
Clearly, competitive advantage is gained when an organization is aligned for success.
The 29 Leadership Practices are the primary "indicators of interest" we use when diagnosing an organization.
When we do an organizational assessment, we know that the absence of the Leadership Practice Using Organizational Forums could affect one or more of the 12 Holonomic Processes (HP):
HP5. Ensuring Systematic Planning that Is Workable
HP6. Integrating Associate Selection, Development and Flow with the Strategic Direction
HP7. Nurturing and Rewarding Opportunistic and Innovative Problem Solving
HP8. Ensuring Healthy Problem Solving throughout the Organization
The 12 Holonomic Processes are the main enabling processes by which the 6 Desired Organizational Characteristics (DOC) are achieved, so the above Holonomic Processes problems could affect:
DOC1. Clarity of Direction
DOC2. Clarity of Structures
DOC3. Clarity of Measurement
DOC4. Successful Goal Achievement
DOC5. Results Oriented Problem Solving
DOC6. Associates Are Assets and Resources

Remember that this "snapshot" is a preliminary assessment only, designed to illustrate areas where you might have problems.
A full on-line assessment probes in a deeper and more complex manner and provides specific insight and suggestions.
The Organizational Diagnostic Survey On-Line (ODS-OL) we use is the most advanced working technology for assessing organizations and its leadership practices. ODS-OL is based on multiple sources of information. ODS-OL does more than compile and analyze data: ODS-OL will derive conclusions about the results of the assessment and then derive recommendations based on these conclusions.
