Organizational Transformation is a journey of continual improvement initiatives. Have you implemented organizational transformation? Even after implementing improvement initiatives are you still facing issues with increasing organizational profits? Have you been searching your organization’s true north? Do you want to know how to successfully implement organizational transformation?

Here we have a solution to all your questions!

In today’s era, where the customer demands, competition, economic pressure and financial crisis are increasing, your organization needs to be proactive and not reactive. In order to do so and become more effective, organizations need to reduce their cost, improve their product quality along with service quality, and respond quickly to the new opportunities. For doing so, an organization needs to incorporate a lot of changes such as improving its quality, reducing throughput (output) time, streamlining and standardizing processes, improving visual management, and a lot more. These parameters help organizations grow and achieve their goals faster.

In order to achieve accelerated growth, organizations implement a few tools and techniques. But the tools are implemented in silos; only in some parts of the organization. And hence, the results are seen only in some parts of the organization. They do not impact the overall growth of the organization which is the bottom line or the profitability of the organization.

You might wonder why. Here is the reason! Organizations work in silos, which is not good at the time of implementing change initiatives. Results will be seen only in specific areas of focus and not across the organization. Change initiatives for organizational transformation is a process where the entire organization needs to work together. In such cases, working in silos will only lead to cultural misalignment or inherent mistrust and territorial partition.

Giving an example; there are two teams in your organization, one is sales and another is production. The production department needs to align its production unit targets along with the sales department. If they do not do so, then the production will never achieve On Time In Full deliveries and thus fail to achieve the vision of the organization for more sales. Similarly, if there are any up-gradations in the competitor’s products and if the production department is not informed about it by the sales team, then the organization would not be able to sustain the competition because teams are working in silos.

So, what can be done to see the results on the bottom line which will further result in enhanced profitability? The answer is – a holistic approach to organizational transformation! If the organization takes a holistic approach to organizational transformation, the results are seen in every part of the organization.

Bottom-line (profit) is the backbone of any organization. If the bottom line is positive, the entire organization will stay productive. Bottom line reflects the fitness of the organization.

You might also think that even after implementing change initiative in silos, you are able to generate savings then why is the impact not seen on the bottom line? The reason is that when you acquire savings from one department, other departments are still running on higher costs and overshoots the budget. So, when the savings are generated, it is intended to be used to cover up the costs. But those savings are not enough to cover the costs for the entire organization. Hence, at the end of the day, there will be no change seen on your balance sheet. Which is why implementing a holistic approach for organizational transformation is necessary. Its impact is seen across the organization and most importantly on the bottom line.

Hence, if any organization wants to implement change, it should look for a holistic implementation process because no matter what the organization says, 94% of the world’s organizations work in silos. Breaking down silos is not an easy task though. The existence of such issues will be harmful to the employees and the overall growth of the organization. If the organization tries to implement change considering it will bring result on the bottom line and enhance the profitability, then the results will never be seen.

These problems would lead to the unsuccessful implementation of the change initiative.
