Our work in the OD arena has been largely around major change management efforts or significant transactions that affect the total organization.
Examples include installing new organization designs or structures, acquisition or merger integrations, or managing a right-sizing or divestiture process.
A mid-sized industrial company had been steadily losing share and money in one major division. The CEO decided to make a change at the top. He wanted help with the planning and implementation.
We worked with the HR group to develop an organization change plan - and then managed the implementation of its elements - to accomplish: (a) the smooth replacement of a divisional CEO, in concert with (b) an organization restructuring, and (c) the ascendance of an internal replacement.
A small ($2 billion), but global pharmaceutical company experienced difficulties launching new products into new and existing geographic markets.
We guided the senior management team through a six-month effort to reorganize from a centralized, corporate + field organization to a field-based, "Customer Business Unit" model, including reducing annual operating costs by more than $60 million.
