Why Conduct An Organizational Analysis?

Leaders need to know what’s going on in their business environment to make the right decisions to position the organization for success. It helps to get an objective picture of your organization’s perceived strengths, weaknesses, barriers and resistance to change. A clear picture of today will help you plan for and implement the changes required to get to your “desired” organization. Excalibur Consulting helps you look at your organization through two lenses – internal lens and external lens.

Internal Lens

You get a thorough understanding of your organization’s capabilities to carry out strategic change, and identify opportunities for operational improvement and cultural change. We use a variety of assessment models to gather internal perceptions and opinions of the situation. Here’s a couple:

  • 7-S Diagnostic Model for Organizational Effectiveness
  • Socio-Technical Change Model for technology change
