Organization structures, most of the times, evolve organically with business growth. The structures more often keep expanding in a reactive manner to accommodate new people, ideas or initiatives. In the haste for growth, businesses lose the simplicity of their structures, and eventually end up being bloated with challenges of level disparity, role overlaps, unclear employ growth path and inefficient in relation to costs.

How can we help you do better
Acumen helps Businesses in Setting up their Organization Structures through the following 3 Phased Approach:
Phase 1: The Structure
- Analysing the current structure and division of responsibilities across the organization
- Designing a framework in line with the business strategy, goals and practices while considering the best practices across different industries
- Mapping Scenarios of Business Growth and Expansion with the Structure
- Creating an Adaptation Path for shifting from the current structure to the New Structure
Phase 3: Roll Out
- Sharing the new structure and expected responsibilities with the teams
- Reviewing the structure and responsibilities being actually executed to cull out the challenges and streamlining them
Phase 2: Roles and Responsibilities
Every structure needs to provide clarity for the team’s role as envisaged for the business.
- Defining the purpose of the role in the business objectives and the fitment in the structure
- Outlining the gaps in role execution from actual practice, business expectations and the new proposed structure
- Detailing the level of responsibilities expected from the role with respect to activities in the functional, organizational and people area
