The organisation panel is one of two panels that straddle the 'Intent' and 'Planning' columns of the Big Picture. On the one hand there are aspects of your current structure that may strongly influence your role and goals (at least for a while), but on the other hand, reconsidering the structure provides an excellent means for better orchestrating and managing your plans for delivery. We tend to find that most organisations on their first cycle of QFD based systematic management tend to retain (in large part) their current structure, and then to progress toward a solely process based structure on their second or third cycle. (For more on process, click here).
The tools section within the 'process' area of the site contains many tools that will help you and your organisation to develop a process perspective, and to ensure that it is used to maximum effectiveness. Some of these tools are shown on the panel above, and are listed below:
Process Design is essentially a process which uses the other tools described on this page, with an emphasis on ensuring creative options are explored, tested, refined and implemented to ensure that the process is able to fulfil its potential. It starts with process context mapping, and then uses process mapping to design the ideal solution.
Blank templates of this panel can be found in the Big Picture Storyboard file - these can be used to capture your own experiences and progress in this area (by annotating them either in PowerPoint, or as a printed panel), and then to physically cut and paste them onto the Big Picture to create your own storyboard of implementing systematic management in your organisation.
