Leader as a Designer

Organizational design is widely is misconstrued as moving around boxes and lines. The first task of organization design concerns designing the governing ideas of purpose, vision and core values by which people will live. Few acts of leadership have a more enduring impact on an organization than building a foundation of purpose and core values.

The second design task involves the policies, strategies, and structures that translate guiding ideas into business decisions. These policy and structures may be implied as institutional embodiment of purpose. Policy making (the rules that guide decisions) ought to be separated from decision making. Otherwise, short-term pressures will usurp time from policy creation.
