Develop Your Organisation
What makes a great organisation?
An organisation’s vision should not be seen as an end point, but rather, a modus operandi for existence. The life of a dynamic organisation cannot be defined in terms of a beginning and an end point, but instead, must be seen as a state of existence.
A business manager must constantly monitor the global environment external to the organisation and make continuous adjustments to the organisation’s operations to ensure their destination is desirable and fruitful
In simple terms, leaders need to guide staff towards a clear vision and implement systems to guide them towards desirable outcomes. Communication amongst all staff is the key to sharing information and ensuring everything works. Monitoring the organisation's greater environment is the key to keeping up, and maximising, contact with customers.
It's not difficult to plan and implement a system to run a business. However, it does need some basic management knowledge and a good deal of discipline.

Many organisations neglect to examine their overall processes, policies, culture and structure to determine whether these will enable their team of people to be customer focused.
Traditionally, organisations have been stifled with bureaucratic structures, autocratic policies, linear cause-and-effect systems and rigid departmentalisation. This creates a staff culture that is self focused, has inter-departmental competition and an attitude of workplace 'survival'.
Organisations need to adopt a new paradigm to foster innovation, creativity, staff security, pride and enthusiasm. Staff will not support the organisation's goals if they are unhappy, insecure, feel repressed and lack pride in their work. To survive in the turbulence of the future business environment, organisations must fuzzy the edges of their structures, harness and disseminate both the tacit and explicit knowledge within the organisation, open their external perimeter to the external world of their customers, and create an enthusiastic workforce.
