Understand how to drive business performance with your organizational data and analytics in the second edition of Data-Driven Organization Design.
Using data and analytics is a key opportunity for businesses to transform performance and achieve success. With a data-driven approach, all the elements of the organizational system can be connected to design an environment in which people can excel and attain competitive advantage. Data-Driven Organization Design provides a practical framework for HR and organization design practitioners to build a baseline of data, set objectives, carry out fixed and dynamic process design, map competencies, and right-size the organization. It shows how to collect the right data, present it meaningfully and ask the most relevant questions of it to help complex, fluid organizations constantly evolve and meet moving objectives.
This updated second edition contains new material on organizational planning and analysis, role design and job architecture, position management lifecycle and delta reporting. Alongside this, new case studies and examples will show how these approaches have been applied in practice. Whether planning a long-term transformation, a large redesign or an individual small project, Data-Driven Organization Design will demonstrate how to make the most of your organizational data and analytics to drive business performance.
About the authors
- You've certainly heard the term 'digital transformation'. Yet being more 'digital' or collecting more data won't get you very far if there aren't methods and tools to better inform the management process. Data Driven Organization Design 2nd Edition renews its focus on the most important asset of any organization: its people. It covers everything you need to easily master the concepts, leverage the data, communicate effectively, and successfully make the positive changes necessary to adopt a data-driven organization design.
