How technology can help optimize organization design to meet today’s and tomorrow’s business challenges

October 27 2022 | Blog

More than ever, businesses need to focus continually on optimizing processes, systems, investment and organizational effectiveness, in order to remain competitive.    

External shocks like COVID and global supply chain pressures, changing demographics, working practices and expectations, and digital disruption, have created an environment where business efficiency, adaptability and resilience take on a new level of importance.

Businesses need to challenge the organizational status quo. How well does it align to business goals, does it meet short and long-term financial aims, and does it reflect best practice?

This process of challenging the organizational status quo is not a one-off exercise, as the organization needs to be able to adapt continually to a changing business environment, challenges and strategies. 

To question the organizational status quo effectively requires the ability to surface and analyze detailed data from HR systems, on how the organization is functioning now, and to model alternatives.

Organizations are complex, and for most, the task of surfacing and processing the data required for effective organizational analysis and modelling goes well beyond human scale. Ingentis org.manager for SAP SuccessFactors is a software solution, enabling HR data visualization from SAP SuccessFactors to power effective organizational design, process management, modelling and decision making. 

This blog post explores how technology, in the form of a toolset like Ingentis org.manager for SAP SuccessFactors can help organizations optimize their structure to meet today’s and tomorrow’s business challenges.

If you’d like to find out more, other blogs in this series, along with an Ingentis eBook consider in more detail why it is important to challenge the organizational status quo and what criteria need to be applied.

Transforming the humble org chart into a powerful business tool

While a stand-alone diagram or chart can help build understanding, it remains a static, passive representation, detached from what is actually happening. The ability to connect it with relevant HR data transforms it into an active and invaluable business tool.

The value of a business process dashboard that exposes data showing how each process step is working in real time, is exponentially higher than that of a two-dimensional process flow diagram.

The increasing need to challenge and continually tune the organizational status quo drives a requirement for the same kind of data-led modelling and dashboarding.

Like process flow diagrams, the organization chart has for a long time been a two-dimensional representation, with no direct link to the real-world HR data and systems that give a picture of how the organization is actually operating.

Now, tools like Ingentis org.manager for SAP SuccessFactors offer the capabilities to make that link, transforming the organization chart into the tool businesses need to successfully question and adapt their organizational design.

Its powerful modelling functionality enables different organizational scenarios to be tested against real data, to understand their impact.

Along with its capabilities as a state-of-the-art tool for maintaining, presenting and exporting up-to-date organization charts with minimal manual effort, Ingentis org.manager for SAP SuccessFactors offers the capabilities organizations need to inform and drive effective organization design.
