Weekend in DC – Real Estate Conference

Organizational design refers to the process of managing and integrating the various components of an organization, including people, information, and technology, in order to achieve its overall goals. Companies with a strong organizational design align the leadership’s management style and company’s processes with its specific needs, philosophy, goals, and structure.

Good organizational design also facilitates communication, productivity, and innovation within a company and helps create an environment where employees and management can work effectively. Although organizational design can be improved from within a company, many organizations benefit from a third-party consultant who can view the company from an outsider’s perspective and make suggestions based on his or her observations.
