Organisation is the engine room of your company, the structure of your building. It needs to be defined once you have your Strategy sorted. Whereas Strategy consists of immaterial visions, plans and analyses, Organisation is very specifically and tangibly the machinery that will get you to where you want to be.

Organisation is the very foundation for you being able to start producing anything. It is the departments, areas of responsibility, allocation of roles, systems, habits – the written and unwritten rules and all the practical matters.

We recommend that you prepare an Employee Handbook at the organisational level. The Employee Handbook basically describes everything that applies to everyone in the company, regardless of function. The Employee Handbook is divided into three sections: Values, Structure and Practicalities.
