We are wrapping up our reorganization report soon and I have committed to giving my boss my report tomorrow. I leave on vacation after that so the timing is good. I won’t be here to hear him howl in frustration.
The biggest challenge I think I have had through this process is to remain a “disconnected” consultant. When crafting a recommended departmental org chart it is extremely difficult to remain an outsider and not bring in personal biases or knowledge. I think I have done that but I guess I am not 100% confident of success.
After the boss reviews the report we will have a meeting to go through the recommendations and action steps and to discuss the realities of the personnel issues that have been raised as a result of the process. In spite of the difficulty, I like what is designed and the resulting chart and think it is going to provide some streamlined processes and systems. Hopefully the end result will be enhanced service to our donors.
There will be some challenges in the days ahead as we work on revising job descriptions and adjusting some of our internal procedures documents. Should be fun. Who can I pass that process off to? Hmm…..
