TheFocusV3I1A Return to Organization Fundamentals
People, Systems, and Strategy




Consider the basic composition of organizations. Any of the several types will do: service, production, for-profit, social, etc. Arguably, people, strategy, and systems constitute the three most basic or primary elements of an organization. One could easily think of these three elements as the fundamental core or foundation. As such, it stands to reason that the beginning of effective knowledge about ones organization starts with understanding the nature of these three elements.

Said another way, successful leadership recognizes an organization’s fundamental nature as essentially a dynamic relationship between people, systems, and strategy. Clearly, these three elements do not exist independent from one another, and while each is complex enough by itself, the involvement of each one with the others creates supremely intricate and complex relationships whose causation have a profound impact on performance.

By improving each of the three elements and carefully aligning them, giving specific attention to their interaction, an organization can become increasingly effective. Any treatment of the organization that is not holistic in this regard, at least in its considerations, exposes the organization and has an increased risk of being ineffective or even damaging.

To be sure, while the three elements together constitute an organization, the interactions between the individual elements form specific relationships that also help to shape and define it. Understanding these compound elements and how they can be affected enables an organization to maximize performance. Specifically, the three relationships introduce opportunities in the areas of business model design, organization development, and change management.

Fundamentally, improvement efforts can be derived from the application of a basic systematic improvement model, such as assess-design-develop-deploy. Such efforts range in scope from broad stroke to acute application and may include the following:

  • Gap and Organizational Health Assessments
  • Strategic Planning and Business Model Design
  • Management Systems Development
  • Value Analysis and Process Improvement
  • Change Management and Business Transformation
  • Leadership and Management Development

While the nature of organizations and any sort of interaction with or within them simply cannot afford to be limited to a two dimensional model, this relatively simple approach, whose aim should be to strengthen and harmonize the three elements, can be effective.

Globalization, the information age, as well as a deeper and broader pool of talent born from a more prolific education system have all leveled the playing field and created a highly competitive and frenzied environment. Successful organizations, the “winners”, are highly adaptive and nimble.

How do they do it? With fundamentals.

Responsiveness, consistent delivery of value, and robust organizational design come from understanding the three basic organizational elements of people, systems, and strategy.
