Technique and solutions that previously worked well became counterproductive, fueling a communication gap between central organizations and the field.
Rotterdam, The Netherlands, (PRWEB) June 07, 2013
ComDyS announces the publication of the white paper “Bridging the Gap Between Central Organizations and the Field: How a Leading IT Services Company Bridged the Widening Gap in an Increasingly Complex World,” along with associated webinars.
The white paper identifies practices and techniques that enabled EDS to become a leading IT services organization worldwide. Those practices worked well until, due to an increasingly complex environment, a game change occurred.
After the game change, the same practices, technique and solutions that previously worked well became counterproductive, fueling a communication gap between central organizations and the field. Improvement needs from the field, as well as offerings, directives and guidelines from the central organization, did not arrive at their destinations. Decisions had to be made without access to quality information. This undermined improvement initiatives as well as day-to-day operations.
Guided Self-Organization(TM) bridged the gap between central organizations and the field, preventing costly mistakes and freeing agendas from troubleshooting. Guided Self-Organization addressed the challenge at three levels:
Level 1: Provide quick access to relevant information
Level 2: Improve the knowledge, with the help of communities of practice
Level 3: Guided Self-Organization: Integrate communities of practices into governance, as well as decision making at the optimum level
The new system provided far-reaching contributions to project success, client satisfaction and cost savings. The white paper can be downloaded from http://www.comdys.com, track Organizational Intelligence. Related online training services are available from the same track, such as designing a central repository so users can find relevant documents within a few mouse clicks.
