Building effective organizations

Turning strategy into reality

Hay Group helps business leaders organize their business and build an effective organization for executing strategy.

Hay Group’s approach
We use a ‘build as you go approach’ that allows senior executives to shape organization design, get buy-in from the leadership team and accelerate implementation. The Hay Group approach includes five core steps:

Hay Group’s skill is developing a clear understanding of what motivates people and how work is most successfully designed. Using this knowledge we help clients strengthen their organizational effectiveness in order to engage leadership and energize employees, driving performance and delivery.

We help businesses with a wide range of business issues:

  • Aligning organizations with new strategies.
  • Designing organizations to support expansion into new markets.
  • Clarifying governance and accountability within rapidly changing organizations.
  • Helping businesses make their matrix structure work.
  • Changing structure and culture to respond to privatization or deregulation.
  • Integrating intangible capital in mergers and acquisitions.

Often we find that executives jump straight from strategy into putting people in ‘boxes.’ They place people in jobs that are ill defined and structures that are poorly constructed.

Our clients need a better way to link strategy and structure. We help them by providing senior executives with a disciplined approach to building effective organizations.

Why Hay Group?
We use our understanding of management behaviors to surface hidden issues that can affect business performance during periods of organizational change.

We have deep expertise in translating strategy into operating models and organization design requirements. We have a proven understanding of people and a breadth of experience that cuts across organizations and industries globally.

We don’t just leave behind a manual of recommendations but work with clients throughout the lifetime of a project and beyond, if required. By transferring knowledge and capability to our clients, we help them lead and manage change more effectively.
