An organization is a group of people working together for a common mission. As the organization succeeds, more people (employees, customers, stakeholders) are involved and the organization grows more complex.
Culture, structure and systems evolve to deal with these growing complexities. Leaders at all levels develop, as do the core competencies of employees and managers needed to sustain the organization’s success. As the organization grows, it is important that its many “systems” stay in alignment. Often small problems go untreated. Over time larger issues can develop and distract employees from achieving the mission. Important external forces can go undetected and begin to push the organization into decline.
