The Challenge

When it comes to your organization’s structure, form should follow function: your systems, people, and processes should be designed and positioned to support your primary purpose. This can be challenging to achieve if you are a new organization still defining your purpose and aspirations (your mission and vision). On the other hand, even if you are already established, you may have lost some of this functional alignment as you’ve grown or your mission, vision, and strategic priorities have evolved. Re-establishing the right structure to best meet your ongoing needs requires a thoughtful approach to ensure your organization remains effective.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Testimonial Sign

I have worked with the Office of Strategic Consulting on various projects over the last several years, including strategic planning as well as developing and implementing organizational change.

The consultants have been highly effective and engaging, offering a critical outside voice with these important processes. They kept planning focused, intentional, and moving forward efficiently and effectively. They also have demonstrated excellent interpersonal communication skills and a breadth and depth of experience.

Finally, I am quite impressed at their ability to acknowledge challenges and concerns team members may have during the process and, at the same time, support them to envision and work towards a future, more optimal organizational state.
