Strategic Direction Clarity
When a Main Enabling Process
is not present or working in your organization...
you will not achieve a Desired Organizational Characteristic
Probably because Leadership Practices are not working
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
HP1. Establishing and Maintaining Clear Strategic Direction
is not present or working in your organization.
So, you are not realizing
DOC1. Clarity of Direction.
The Holonomic Theory of Organizations suggests that the underlying cause might relate to the following leadership Practices not being present or operating:
LP01 Understanding Environmental Changes
LP02. Developing and Using the Strategic Direction
LP03. Ensuring Unit-Level Strategic Direction
LP04. Using Strategic Long-Range and Tactical Plans
LP05. Updating Organizational Assumptions
LP10. Ensuring Results Consistency with Strategic Direction
LP27. Ensuring Improvements in Technology.
Also, with HP1. Establishing and Maintaining Clear Strategic Direction
not present or working, you will probably find that
DOC4. Successful Goal Achievement
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.
