Simplify Organisational Complexity
- Target Collaboration Gaps
Collaboration is widely acknowledged as the enabler of competitive advantage in the current economy. Are you certain that your organisation is collaborating where it creates the most value? Wexxa Integration Index measures the integration between any two entities. In the example here we looked at the integration in-between business areas and the group function in a company, but the integration index evaluates, for example, the integration across tenures and geographies just as well.
A collaboration matrix, one of the tools we use, is a facts-based tool to understand the collaboration gaps within a company, and exactly which groups and interfaces that need more attention.
Remember that there are times when the integration should be low, to avoid collaboration overload. Regardless if your integration is too high or too low, you should know how integrated your organisation is, so you can act, and follow up on improvements later on.

WE THINK BEYOND ORGANISATIONAL CHARTS
We are confident in the transition from command and control structures to collaborative models. Why?
Because the organisational chart is merely a simplification of how your organisation actually works!
We know that organisations are much more - the ties in your organisational chart is just the tip of the iceberg!
YOUR ORGANISATION IS NOT YOUR ORGANISATIONAL CHART
Your organisation is highly complex, which is why you should not make decisions based on the out-dated organisational chart.
There are people, friends, emotions and extremely important informal ties - without them your company would go out of business.
That's why your should start listening, and observe what your firm really is...
WE KNOW WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN YOUR COLLABORATIVE NETWORK
To run your organisation without knowing your collaborative network is really like blind-foldedly operating a boat on an open sea. Chances are that things will be just fine, and that you feel in control. Despite this, you know you will one day hit shore, no matter how good your other senses are.
Getting to know your collaborative networks will enable your vision and help you understand where to steer to next. Let us help you to find the 'needles' in your collaborative 'haystack', and show you what to do with them.
WE PROVIDE METRICS AND GIVE SUGGESTIONS THAT WILL HELP YOU REACH COLLABORATIVE EFFECTIVENESS AND YOUR BUSINESS GOALS
Your collaborative network data can be analysed in two layers that work best together: computed collaboration KPIs (ex. diversity, org. vulnerability e.t.c.) and deeper pattern analysis.
The KPIs are general collaboration metrics that can be benchmarked against other similar organisations, and deeper analyses are targeted towards your specific business goals.
We offer and recommend both, and will gladly help you conquer collaborative effectiveness and reach bold business goals.
