Does your workplace act more like an Oligarchy, Monarchy… Anarchy? Probably not. Well, maybe a little. It definitely has Hierarchy. Lots of it too. Hierarchies are everywhere, all the time. Natural systems of order. Inescapable in fact. Design them well or they take shape organically. As a managerial system, we have never adequately used this tool. More like misused, or even abused. Until now.

You and your colleagues are probably only partially effective at work. At least that’s what thousands of you (from companies of all shapes and sizes) have told us. Kind of like getting a full time salary for part-time outputs. Not for lack of ambition or effort. Just a whole lot of work to do before you can get your actual work done. We know you are smiling awkwardly right now.

Why the Y, you might ask? It’s because Structure Shapes Behaviour™. The basic reason for how the work things get done, or not. ARCHYTECT is all about organization design. A 60-year timespan of managerial, psychological, behavioural, sociological and systems theory have been combined, tested and proven in practice with this unique approach.

Nearly all of those mentioned before believe they can accomplish more: bigger, better and faster results. That’s despite the internal barriers you already navigate to get things done. Your motivations are unwavering. We all strive to feel accomplished. Complexity gets in the way. Maybe a bit of absurdity too. It's as simple as that.

 

What We Do

ORGANIZATION

MODELS

Objectives, alignments and adaptations. Together we predetermine the ideal business configurations that inform your Strategy, Structure and Staff demands. Analyze your unique operating conditions and build custom models that guide function, form and design principles.

TARGET

BEHAVIOURS

Reveal the behavioural norms, causes and effects of your current workplace environment. Expose hidden barriers and limitations to performance. Generate workplace insights and design data. Map target behaviours against the desired outcomes you want to achieve.

 

COMPLEXITY

ANALYSIS

Identify and predict the inherent V.U.C.A. associated with your operating plans. Assess the distribution of effort, capacity and cost. Determine target completion times of tasks and job classifications. Anticipate future workload and capability requirements.

STRUCTURE

BLUEPRINTS

Taller or flatter really does matter. Org charts are not org design. Your Blueprints are the framework for all individual and team accomplishments. Vertical, horizontal and diagonal relationships. Your structure either defines or confines how results are achieved.

 

WORKPLACE

DESIGN

Level the work to level-up performance. Know your capability, competency and collaboration demands. Match the jobs, teams and measures across functions. Make sure all decisions, process and work flows are effortless, with timeliness and purpose.
