Modern Organizational Structures & Processes

Modern organizational structures & processes

More than 200 years after the start of the industrial revolution, the topics of division of labour, specialization and standardization are more than ever the central challenges of entrepreneurial activity. Companies must increasingly focus on generating superior customer benefits through the customer-specific integration of standardized partial services.

A significant proportion of today’s innovations are based on a clever interplay between standardization in products, services or business processes that is imperceptible from the customer’s perspective and a customer-specific combination and integration that forms the actual core of the customer benefit.

Modern organizational structures and processes serve precisely to ensure an appropriate division of labour on the one hand, thereby enabling efficiency and productivity gains, and on the other hand to effectively combine the partial services provided in a process based on the division of labour and to meet customer requirements in terms of the availability and delivery time of products or services. Global sales and procurement markets, increasingly complex supply relationships and volatile markets place significantly higher demands on business organization than in the past. New types of collaborative working and organizational forms that rely on greater flexibility and agility are becoming an important part of our working world in the context of digitalization.

Against this backdrop, organizational structures and processes must be constantly rethought and further developed.

The transformation of the corporate organization and the adaptation of the workflow organization and rules of the game are becoming an important pillar of corporate success. This involves designing organizational structures in a process-oriented way and mapping the individual requirements of the entire network in clear role and function descriptions and a consistent target system in organizational development (OD).

Efficient SCM organization

A modern and lean organization with clear regulations and responsibilities contributes to the company’s long-term success by ensuring short and clear decision-making paths.

Increased efficiency through process orientation

A clear focus on the process from customer to customer reduces the effort required for coordination and increases the quality of results.

Increased adaptability

Lean and value-added-oriented organizational forms react quickly even in volatile market conditions and thus remain effective.

What are the core principles of a modern organization?

Necessary organizational adjustments often result from company growth, a changed market environment or changes in the corporate strategy or business model. In particular, the optimal interaction and balance between centralized and decentralized roles and functions is a major challenge here.

Our many years of experience and our best-practice methods ensure the success of your project.

Deriving the optimal balance of centralized, decentralized or hybrid organizational forms from market requirements is often a major challenge for companies.

A typical example is the development of a powerful and process-oriented SCM organization. The appropriate general organizational model is a multi-line organization that creates clear responsibility for managing the value chain. As a rule, independent organizational units are formed which have clear responsibility for planning and controlling an entire supply chain.

Without such an overall process responsibility, it is hardly possible to resolve planning conflicts quickly in practice and to eliminate reactive power in the supply chains in the form of time and inventory buffers. Competencies must be balanced between planning and line functions according to the company’s situation. This organizational change is one of the keys to success for SCM.

For us, change management means the active and targeted planning, implementation and evaluation of holistic change measures, i.e. processes, structures, attitudes and behavior, in order to achieve your business goals.


Identify the right levers!

Organizational development

Modern structures do not simply emerge by themselves, but require targeted design. The organization to be changed is not a mechanical system, but a complex entity made up of people with very different cultural and social contexts, perceptions, feelings and personal interests. A new structure cannot be designed on the drawing board. Rather, it is a matter of actively accompanying the changes in the company with regard to the attitudes, skills and behavior of all the people involved in order to achieve the business objectives.

Global SCM structures

International or global companies are inevitably faced with the task of effectively coordinating their value chains in a global context. Clearly defining and balancing centralized and decentralized functions and responsibilities is a key challenge when it comes to optimally meeting the requirements of the various target markets.

Process-oriented (“end-to-end”) SCM organization

A supply chain runs right through a functional organization – from sales, purchasing, production and logistics to the customer. Establishing a process-oriented organization ensures that clear responsibilities are created for coordinating the supply chain from customer to customer and that processes are thought through “end-to-end” and continuously improved in order to best meet customer requirements.
