Our mission is to be your guide to becoming an organization architect with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to [re]create your ideal organization. An organization that produces sustainable value for multiple stakeholders. We provide frameworks, tools, and techniques in the form of digital learning and applications labs to help organization architects of all types learn how to [re]create the organization they really want.
Our vision is a world where all leaders have the knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs), along with the tools, techniques, and technologies (T3) to [re]imagine, [re]design, [re]build, and lead the organizations they really want. A World where all organizations create sustainable value for multiple stakeholders. Our job is to help develop and support the designers and innovators around the world who are reinventing leadership and management and their organizations with world-class digital media, educational experiences, and applications labs that support a “learn by doing process.”
Service to Stakeholders
First and foremost, we value service to others. Service that helps develop the full potential of our fellow humans. Our work builds “bridges” between theory and practice to reimagine and recreate organizations that create value for multiple stakeholders and sustainable excellence. This requires systems thinking combined with a heavy dose of design thinking in a collaborative approach to management innovation. Serving organization architects is why we get up each day and work on creating more content and improving our current content.
Independence + Integrity
This site is self-funded and free from external sponsorship or influence. We are free to do what we think is the right thing to do for our members and stakeholders. This is further enabled by our focus on honesty, integrity, and trust which is the foundation for all our activities. With integrity and trust many things are possible, but without it nothing is possible. And, it is the basis for collaboration and teamwork.
Collaboration + Teamwork
We have not found a single person who knows enough to design an effective organization by their self. We value collaboration with organization architects of all types to help develop designs that incorporate the best of your thinking with the best of our thinking. We treat everyone with the same high level of respect regardless of their title, knowledge, skills, or accomplishments. This encourages collaboration among a wide variety of stakeholders.
We value designs that do not steal from one stakeholder (including future generations) to serve another stakeholder or our current “needs” or greed. We help you work toward organization designs that generate value for all your key stakeholders both current and future. In other words, designs that create win-win systems solutions for today and tomorrow. Our approach is based on a solid foundation of empirical evidence, practical experience, and systems thinking that inform the creative design process to reimagine and reinvent your organization and your leadership.
At the Organization Design Studio™ we are working to improve the human condition and having fun doing it. When we are having fun, we are doing our best work. If you are not having fun at work, either you are doing it wrong, or your leaders/managers are doing it wrong, or both.
