Inter-departmental coordination and organization design
Creating Departmental Alignment
It’s the nature of business. As a company grows, its departments expand to develop their own management, staff and operational procedures. Department leaders set goals and benchmarks of success to ensure they are constantly improving.
This departmental division within a company helps harness the power of focus on each vital function of the organization. However, too often, departments will be at odds with one another – either outwardly, or in much more subtle ways that consistently cost the company by lowering productivity and dampening employee motivation.
Through the “test lab” experience that she established in working to create the departmental alignment that was needed to turn around an underperforming division of Walt Disney World, Betsy Jordyn has created a systematic approach to getting departments to work together for the benefit of the entire organization.
Armed with this system and the skills and intuition she developed through her years of organizational leadership, Betsy is able to quickly assess and pinpoint the core structural and motivational misalignments that are causing the departmental conflicts.
She then finds the commonalities and corrects misperceptions as well as any structural issues in order to create alignment so that the individuals and departments all benefit while supporting and achieving overall company objectives.
This innovative approach has proven itself to be far more effective and cost-efficient than the trial and error that companies often go through as they churn through a revolving door of departmental leaders and attempt to dictate cooperation through C-Suite directives.
By working through the existing culture and structure of each department and weaving their motivations and incentives into support for the organization, Betsy is able to help inspire and foster a spirit of cooperation within the entire corporate culture.
