How well does your structure, service delivery model and operating model align with your business goals? The right organisational design can help drive productivity, people and profitability.

The infrastructure of your organisation – and how it’s designed – determines the cost of running your business and how revenue is generated. When aligned to strategy, it reduces costs and removes the revenue barriers arising from mismatched resourcing, inefficient processes, slow decision making or the wrong controls. Organisation design should also be optimised following M&A activity, rapid growth or change in strategy.
