Kicking Off a Successful Organization Redesign
When leaders lay the appropriate groundwork for a redesign, they not only increase the chances of achieving business goals, but also help employees embrace changes and pivot their behavior accordingly.

Organization redesigns present tough challenges for business leaders, ranging from disrupted operations to disgruntled employees and stakeholders. Only 25 percent of redesigns are considered successful, indicating just how difficult these projects can be. Studies show almost half are abandoned before completion, and a third of those implemented fail to deliver expected benefits.

How can executives and change leaders improve the odds of success for redesign projects? A positive launch goes a long way towards achieving the desired results. A new publication from AlignOrg Solutions provides a step-by-step blueprint to help leaders properly prepare for the challenges ahead.

“The ultimate success of an organization redesign begins with a strong foundation,” AlignOrg Solutions’ Principal Reed Deshler said. “When leaders lay the appropriate groundwork for a redesign, they not only increase the chances of achieving business goals, but also help employees embrace changes and pivot their behavior accordingly."

The executive guide, Kicking Off a Successful Organizational Redesign, offers a wide range of suggestions to increase the likelihood an organization redesign will meet its goals. It identifies five keys to success:

  • Clarifying objectives and expected outcomes.
  • Building a team for success.
  • Dedicating the right amount of time.
  • Leveraging proven tools and techniques.
  • Determining a decision-making model.

The new guide explores the common causes of design project failures, and then explains how to limit setbacks during the transformational journey ahead by building a strong foundation using solid strategies, thorough planning, and effective communications.
