Traditional Linear Processes

This graphic represents the traditional Value Chain and the tendency for ‘silos’ to develop at each stage.

One way of reducing the negative aspects of such a situation is to design clear processes that string them together and endeavour to cross the respective boundaries. Unfortunately, the processes tend to be predominantly linear in design and as such reinforce the silo mind-set.

Equally, each ‘silo’ has its own hierarchy of roles and people; often with a lot of duplication of activities.

In essence, the whole situation is based on ‘Industrial Age’ thinking where people are not trusted and are managed like machines.

Collaborative Network

In an age of increasing technological innovation and connectivity there is a lot of pressure on organisations to be very quick and flexible in their approach to business.

Traditional hierarchical and linear organisations are finding it increasingly difficult to meet the new demands, particularly speed of decision making and process changes.

The use of Cloud, Artificial Intelligence and the Circular Economy places further pressure on traditional organisational designs and processes.

Most organisations survive and thrive on informal internal networks that bypass formal processes when it is necessary to meet specific challenges.

The concept of a Collaborative Network uses this known age-old practice and formalises it in a specific way. This provides the organisation with a combination of fluidity and responsiveness that changes the whole concept of organisational design.

If you want to know more about this innovative and successful approach, contact us for a meeting.

What do we do?

It is important that organisations of today are designed and operate in ways that are future-proof and beyond the industrial-age traditionalist approach and mind-set.

The Management Resource Centre is dedicated to supporting organisations and their people to achieve exceptional performance in a rapidly changing operating environment.

We do this by working with the leadership at all levels within an organisation to improve the way that their organisations are structured and operate.

At the same time we help all of their people discover, enhance, and use their latent talents and abilities at both the individual, team and organisational level.

The outcome of working with the MRC is that our clients set and achieve impressive corporate and personal goals and objectives.

We support and empower our clients at all stages of their development using powerful yet simple methodologies that the clients can continue to use once we have left.

Re-energise your organisation through impressive performance
