Professor Kenneth Mackenzie, one of the world's leading experts on leadership and organizational design, has identified in his Holonomic Theory of Organizations the 12 Holonomic Processes [HP] that are the main enabling processes by which the 6 Desired Organizational Characteristics (DOC)are achieved.
Your Holonomic Top Down Assessment indicates that you feel that
HP6. Integrating Associate Selection, Development and Flow with the Strategic Direction
is not present or working in your organization.
So, you are not realizing
DOC6. Associates Are Assets and Resources.
The Holonomic Theory of Organizations suggests that the underlying cause might relate to the following leadership Practices not being present or operating:
LP18. Developing Associates
LP19. Aligning Associates with the Strategic Direction
LP20. Encouraging Best Decision-making
LP22. Using Organizational Forums.
Also, with HP6. Integrating Associate Selection, Development and Flow with the Strategic Direction
not present or working, you will probably find that
DOC2. Clarity of Structures
is also not present or working.

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.
Use our ASK THE EXPERT form to contact Don Schwerzler - to learn how your organization can use ODS-OL to perfect the design and function of your organization.
