Organizational Capacity and Growth

Your organization will grow or wither based on the organizational system and your capacity to develop and sustain what works while eliminating what doesn’t work.

What is it?

Organizational capacity is like a bucket that holds water. Your necessary productivity and skilled knowledge is the bucket. The people, products, processes, and procedures are the water.

Is the water filling the bucket? Is it overflowing? Is it too low?

Why does it matter?

When organizations grow and change in complexity, the problems that they felt do not go away – they increase. Understanding your current capacity and what problems are ‘normal vs. abnormal’ will enable you to build a process to fix what needs fixing, increase what is working, and decrease what is not working, leading to a robust, antifragile organization.

What are the areas of focus?

Through this process, we will identify within your organization and departments where you have a deficit or excess of capacity for growth. From the identification, we work to understand what current challenges and opportunities are needed for your organization to make progress. We then work together to develop a plan and progress steps to use the excess or deficit of capacity to make changes and sustainable operations to achieve growth and longevity of the organization.

We focus on:

  1. The organization as a whole
  2. The departments within the organization
  3. The roles within the departments
  4. The people who fill those roles

How will you make progress?

  1. Knowledge of where you have excess and deficit capacity within your organization and departments
  2. A capacity building plan that will provide operations and structure to grow your organization
