TPAP022: Systems Thinking for a High-Performance Organisation
Max Blumberg speaks again with Alec Levenson about the strategic mindset that's needed for an organisation to work as an efficient whole. - Register for Alec's masterclass on this topic, 10 April, London HR's position in business strategy is the subject of much discussion, as is the ongoing challenges in connecting the traditional people-centric culture of HR with the financial and operational culture of other areas of the organisation. In reality, there should be no disconnect at all. The underlying problem that leads to the siloed mentality - in all departments, not just HR - is a lack of Systems Thinking. The result is a situation where the various parts of the organisation work often in opposing directions, and the organisation as a whole suffers from this inefficiency. Alec's recent work has been around promoting this Systems mindset, and the enormous performance benefits that it can yield. In this week's episode, they discuss: The concept of Systems Thinking The interconnectedness of disparate functions in an organisation The challenges for leadership in HR as much as wider business in tuning into this connectedness An overview of Alec's masterclass, and what people will learn from it The Hospital Analogy, and some practical advice on how to reassess how your organisation thinks. Moving from an unconscious collection of parts to a conscious, holistic system.
