Lead your people successfully with the Pyramid of Organizational Development.
Imagine that you've just been put in charge of a small, entrepreneurial company.
Although the company is still in its infancy, it has incredible potential. You want to ensure that it grows and realizes this potential, but you're aware that there's a huge amount to do to transform it into a strong, successful, mature business.
So, how will you guide the company through this process?
At key stages in their development, entrepreneurial companies need to perform certain actions and put in formal systems, if they're going to grow further.
This is where a model like the Pyramid of Organizational Development is useful. The model creates a route map that young and growing companies can use to manage the activities necessary for growth or development. By using the pyramid, leaders can ensure that they address key issues, and can avoid the sometimes serious problems that can come with not having done this.
In this article, we'll look at the Pyramid of Organizational Development, and we'll think about how you can address each step in the pyramid.
