The Monthly “Dot Connections”: Digital Organizational Design Dot Connection Dec. 2019

The effects of an increasingly digitized world are now reaching into every corner of businesses and every aspect of organizations. Organization of the Future is an organization designed openly for anyone with ideas on how human organizations ought to be contrived in the face of the strategic imperatives of the digital era. The work is not the place you go, but a live organization and an experiment lab you can connect the dots to explore the art of possibility.


      Digital Organizational Design Dot Connection 

The Digital Organizational Design vs. Balance The purpose of organizational design is to improve the business maturity from functioning to firm to delight, and ultimately achieve the high-performance business result. High mature digital organizations integrate organizational design (OD) into the process design and organizational re-engineering for enabling employees doing their work productively and shape an interactive, dynamic, balanced and multidimensional ecosystem.

Performance Management vs. Digital Organizational Design Performances are not just numbers with metrics, they are numbers in context, results related to your business goals both at the strategic and operational level. Measuring and managing performance means setting performance metrics, making objective assessments, understanding results, adjusting plans & structures, and making decisions to ensure great business results. The reality in most organizations though is the performance which is forcibly jammed within an existing organizational structure with silo functions and overly rigid hierarchy, and very few companies are truly leveraging organizational development (OD) resources wisely. But due to the digital nature of hyperconnectivity and interdependence, more often, the successful performance improvement initiatives should have representation and input from organizational structure management. Organizational Design vs. Performance Management: How to take an integrated approach, fine-tune OD and improve performance management effectiveness and maturity?

Digital Organizational Design vs. Business Changeability The very characteristics of digital are the increasing speed of change and hyper-connectivity. Digital makes a significant impact on every aspect of the business both horizontally and vertically. Forward-looking organizations leverage the latest technologies to fine tune the organizational structure and improve the business changeability. Organization design is the vehicle through which the business strategy is executed and defines the business environment in which the digital organization can reduce the organizational culture friction, improve the business changeability, maturity, and unleash its full potential.

Business Process and Organizational Design in Digital Transformation Digital becomes the very fabric of modern business, being outside-in and customer-centric is the new mantra for forward-look digital organizations today. However, there are many tough challenges ahead, and numerous roadblocks around, such as how to digitize, optimize or innovate business processes, what’re the fresh perspectives of organizational design (OD) by taking advantage of digital technologies? Where is the dividing line between OD and process? Should there be a handoff from process to OD, and where should that occur? Or should they work together from start to finish, which rarely occurs?

Enterprise Architecture vs. Enterprise Design Organizations are 'purposeful' systems. This means they have a purpose and work to achieve a goal. Not all systems are purposeful. Enterprise Architecture is glue to connect such purpose (WHY), strategy (WHAT) and execution (HOW). Enterprise Design can elevate business from functioning, firm to delight. But what constitutes the distinction in detail between design and architecture, between enterprise design and enterprise architecture?

The “Future of CIO” Blog has reached 3 million page views with about #6300th blog posting in 59+ different categories of leadership, management, strategy, digitalization, change/talent, etc. The “Digital Masterbook series includes 28 books to share insight from the multidimensional digital lens and perceive the multi-faceted impact the digital era upon us is making to the businesses and society. The content richness is not for its own sake, but to convey the vision and share the wisdom. Blogging is not about writing, but about thinking and innovating new ideas; it’s not just about WHAT to say, but about WHY to say, and HOW to say it. It reflects the color and shade of your thought patterns, and it indicates the peaks and curves of your thinking waves. Unlike pure entertainment, quality and professional content takes time for digesting, contemplation and engaging, and therefore, it takes time to attract the "hungry minds" and the "deep souls." It’s the journey to amplify diverse voices and deepen digital footprints, and it's the way to harness your innovative spirit.
