OD - Organizational Development module
Reflection Cafe - Silos and Slabs in Organizations
|Target population:||M's and Excluded positions|
|Many of today’s organizations are highly-structured and complex, which can make communicating and getting the job done difficult. We look at two characteristics of their formal structures – silos and slabs - and the challenges they present to managing, and then investigate ways to manage across and beyond them.
This session will provide you with an opportunity to:
•Understand the effects of silos and slabs within organizations.
•Understand how these structures can act as barriers to getting things done
•Challenge yourselves to manage beyond formal structure
