What is Your Organisation’s Purpose? | Improving Organizational Effectiveness & Performance | Scoop.it
Purpose is all about the Why? Why does your organisation exist? What does it stand for in the world? And what difference would it make if it wasn’t there? (RT @pdiscoveryuk: What is Your Organisation’s Purpose?

Communication - Leadership Qualities

Communication - Leadership Qualities | Improving Organizational Effectiveness & Performance | Scoop.it
from the Center for Management & Organization Effectiveness

Leaders who communicate well with others can use this skill to gain a better understanding of those around them, build trust,...
Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s insight:

Good communication is certainly valuable as a leadership tool. More generally effective organizations do a great job at communicating formally and informally.  Nearly everyone in highly effective organizations seems to know what's going on, what they need to do and how to find information they don't have.  This enables them to align with goals, coordinate activities, improve performance, know when changes are needed,  allow organization members to act more independently and flexibly, and a myriad of others things that help the enterprise get better results.

Empowering Improved Organizational Performance Through Organizational Effectiveness | Improving Organizational Effectiveness & Performance | Scoop.it

This resource collects and presents tools and techniques to support efforts to improve enterprise results regardless of organization industry or type.  Comments and remarks seek to clarify the relevance or value of enhanced organizational effectiveness as a means of achieving better performance. 

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s insight:

Improved Organizational Effectiveness can be achieved in a number of ways.  The Empowering Effectiveness Model categorizes these paths to effectiveness in four categories:

 

=> Broad Alignment-ensuring clear direction and focus are pervasive throughout the organization
 

=> Robust Engagement-establishing a level of commitment that drives effort regardless of current circumstances 
 

=> Sustainable Adaptation-maintaining the capacity to anticipate and meet current and future challenges. 
 

=> Superb Execution-unceasingly pursuing excellent performance and performance improvement.   

 

A critical element in the on-going journey to improved effectiveness is Purposeful Leadership.  Such leadership involves finding the best ways to promote organizational success.   See Empowering Effectiveness Graphic at  http://img.scoop.it/YSU0h1-8Uul3SU8iQekNtTl72eJkfbmt4t8yenImKBVvK0kTmF0xjctABnaLJIm9

The Eight Archetypes of Leadership

The Eight Archetypes of Leadership | Improving Organizational Effectiveness & Performance | Scoop.it
Which kind of leader are you?

 

Although the ghost of the Great Man still haunts leadership studies, most of us have recognized by now that successful organizations are the product of distributive, collective, and complementary leadership. The first step in putting together such a team is to identify each member of the team’s personality makeup and leadership style, so that strengths and competences can be matched to particular roles and challenges. Getting this match wrong can bring misery to all concerned and cause considerable damage.

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s insight:

We can gleen four purposes for leadership from these archetypes: Adaptation, Alignment, Engagement and Execution

The Keys to Building a High-Performance Culture

The Keys to Building a High-Performance Culture | Improving Organizational Effectiveness & Performance | Scoop.it
There are six crucial components to creating sustainable growth in your company, according to Gallup research.
Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s insight:

Finding that Gallup research has identified six components for improving organization's growth potential is gratifying.  They, in fact, correspond well with the four key factors for improving organizational effectiveness and performance, so often noted here. Performance management is a useful tool in creating Alignment (the first factor).  Creating empowerment and authority are two important ingredients in building Engagement (the second factor).  Becoming customer-centric is a critical means for understanding external changes and so is one aspect of Adaptation (the third factor).  Enhancing training and development is naturally a key to greater competence and productivity and so directly supports Execution (the fourth factor).  The remaining components noted (better leadership, communication and collaboration) are of course keys to success in any enterprise; they enable the implementation of the other components or factors.

Managing For Disruption

Managing For Disruption | Improving Organizational Effectiveness & Performance | Scoop.it
At its core, disruption is an informational problem more than anything else. The answer to it isn’t trying to dig in to protect individual nodes, but to create a network that is at once more cohesive and expansive.
Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s insight:

Sustainable Adaptation is about the capacity to shape the future of an organization.  The creation of cohesive, expansive networks is one useful way to build adaptability that will last. Learning organizations are another with an internal focus.  The approach to sustainable adaptation must include an organization’s current portfolio of competencies, and building new competencies to capture a larger share of markets or new market opportunities. Speed, agility, quality, better intelligence and other advantages that enable not only out maneuvering competitors but also change the playing field to more effectively use an organization's strengths.

Internal & External Communication Tactics to Increase Organizational Effectiveness

Internal & External Communication Tactics to Increase Organizational Effectiveness | Improving Organizational Effectiveness & Performance | Scoop.it
Internal & External Communication Tactics to Increase Organizational Effectiveness. As technology continues to change, so too do the way that organizations communication both internally and externally.
Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s insight:

Good communication is vital to every organization; these tips can be helpful, but ultimately organization cultural norms as well as individual preferences will win out in determining how communication takes place.  The goal is to find methods of communication that insure mutual understanding and most often these have to be two-way at least to some extent. It really is a pervasive awareness of the importance of good communication that characterizes the most effective organizations. The abundance of tactics that can be used is certainly helpful in this regard.

A Comment on: HR Should Own Organizational Effectiveness

Although we do not think that any role should, or indeed could “own” something as cooperation-based as organizational effectiveness, we do sympathize with the frustration of modern organizations regarding the passive role ...
Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s insight:

HR's role in supporting organizational effectiveness often goes unrecognized or under appreciated. Examples include: selecting and developing great contributors, fostering employee engagement, designing jobs, relationships and processes that enable individual flexibility and organizational agility, and supporting performance management policies and procedures that align workforce activites with organizational strategy and goals.

The Agility Factor

A few large companies in every industry show consistently superior profitability relative to their peers, and they all have one thing in common: a highly developed capacity to adapt their business to change.
Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s insight:

A large body of research has confirmed that adaptation, one of the four elements of organizational effectiveness, is critical for organization long-term survival, according to this  article and the subsequent book , The Agility Factor. It identifies a set of capabilities that make the enterprise more adaptable (or agile) and enable it to survive and thrive over time. Along with this focus on managing outward changes, the remaining elements of effectiveness distinquish highly successful enterprises.
