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

Of course communication is critical for effectiveness; it is the glue that holds together the myriad of relationships critical for an enterprise of any sort to function well.  To enhance organizational effectiveness,  we need to ask how communication ought to be applied.  From the Empowering Effectiveness perspective, the answer is to foster communications that support alignment, adaptation, engagement and execution. In the complex world of pharmaceuticals, where promoting health, good science, and financial success are complexly intertwined, communications may be improved by considering, as this blog reminds us,  how they contribute to desired organizational results.

Appreciative inquiry is valuable in building effective  organizations because it engages a wide cross-section in understanding how the organization can improve. The positive involvement of organization members on working on issues that are important can be very helpful and helps overcome any biases that consultants and facilitators bring.  The assumption, however, that the organization knows best what's best for it should be surfaced and tested; we must be vigilant about blind spots--our own and others.

State of the Union 2014: President Obama Puts Strengthening Women Front and Center | Leadership, Change Management & Women Issues | Scoop.it
For too many American women, the dream of "having it all" has morphed into "just hanging on." This is not about handouts. This is about smart economic policy. Working women are the core of our economy. Leave them out and you don't have a robust economy. Lead with them and you do.

Leaders With a Deep Sense of Purpose

Unilever CEO Paul Polman talks about how politicians are floundering as social and economic pressures converge. We need a new type of capitalism, he believes, and a new sort of leader with a deeper sense of purpose if we are to seize this opportunity to eradicate poverty and create a better world.

Leaders' deeper sense of  purpose that Mr Poleman refers to will benefit organizations and their communities. Purpose resonates with employees and engages them; one key element in effective organizations. Responding to societal needs as in socially responsible organization evokes positive responses from communities and customers; this openness to larger needs contributes also to effectiveness by encouraging agility and adaptation in the face of change. 

Efficienarta's curator insight, January 30, 2014 3:28 AM

At all levels, I sense that a sense of purpose is the most effective foundation for developing effective engagement abd enduring commitment.

Cross-Level Alignment

Cross-Level Alignment | Leadership, Change Management & Women Issues | Scoop.it
Alignment across different functions, teams, departments, and locations (i.e., cross-functional alignment) definitely contributes to organizational effectiveness, but what about alignment across different levels?

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, January 10, 2014 10:14 AM

Aligning horizontally and vertically through the organization are both critical, but are not really different things; there is always an implicit vertical and horizontal aspect when aligning strategies, goals, or other activities.  More important than the directionality of alignment is the amount or degree.  Not enough and there is unfocused, misdirected effort; too much and there is insufficent flexibility and agility that slows innovation and response to change.
