Why Your Company is the Way It Is

Have you ever wondered why your company is the way it is? Or, why is it so difficult to change your organization when the solution seems so obvious? I'd like to add another tool to your toolkit to figure this out: the Congruence Model.

The Congruence Model views organizations as being made up of different components: People, Work, Structure, and Culture. It analyzes how each component interacts with each other and believes that in order for an organization to operate effectively these components should exist in relative balance with each other. However, it also hypothesizes that different parts of an organization can fit well together and function effectively, while other parts can fit poorly together and lead to problems, dysfunctions, and poor performance.

During this session, we will discuss and practice:
  • Identifying what symptoms or problems you are seeing in your organization 
  • What things could be impacting your organization: company history, competitive environment, company strategy 
  • How to identify behaviors and outputs should your organization be producing 
  • Identifying the problems 
  • Making hypothesis about what is causing the problem
  • Developing action plans
