Architecting the People

April 2, 2012

An organization’s most critical capability lies in its DNA: most often, the people that make up the organization.  Thoughts and actions (within and outside the organization) are determined by the way the people think and act.  An organization’s vision for its future can be realized only if it lives in, and is amplified by the thoughts and actions of its people.  But thoughts and actions from different people are not always synergistic, nor even additive. Also, individual thoughts and actions are driven by many forces that may be at odds with the organization’s objectives.  Architecting the power structure, governance, motivational and cultural aspects of an enterprise may be the key to positioning an enterprise to achieve its objectives.

EA is not complete (and may even be undermined) without an appropriate consideration of these aspects.
