Recession? Time to strengthen your company

Who’s got time to worry about building a stronger organisation in a downturn? Surely executives can’t focus on internal issues when they face so many other pressing matters?

But this is exactly the time when leaders need to ensure their organisations are performing well, so that important decisions get made and executed quickly and effectively.

Turbulence offers a rare chance to bring in new talent and improve the way that organisations function.

The trouble is that companies under duress often lack the organisational capabilities to meet mounting challenges. Some make snap decisions. Others stall, unable to decide. Yet others badly need new people to bring fresh perspectives or help them overhaul dysfunctional cultures.

Strengthening the organisation is one of the most powerful levers any company can pull to improve its performance in a downturn. It starts by asking a series of questions:

  1. What are the critical decisions in this downturn?
  2. Do we need to adjust our organisational structure to address them effectively?
  3. How should our roles and processes change?
  4. Will our most experienced people be able to make and execute key decisions?
  5. Which aspects of our culture reinforce decision effectiveness, and which don’t?

Adopting this “decision lens” is the single most important step that a company can take to improve its performance.

It helps leaders focus their efforts where they will have the most impact during a downturn and accelerate growth when the economy improves.

1) Identifying the critical decisions

Every company has its critical decisions. If your business is in relatively good shape, those decisions may not have changed much. Some will be the big choices, like whether to acquire a competitor or invest in a new product. Others may be everyday frontline decisions.

Toyota, for example, achieved its leading position partly through its reputation for manufacturing quality. To maintain that quality, the carmaker ensures that workers in every plant know how to make and execute the right quality-related decisions.

These decisions are as important now as when Toyota was growing rapidly.

If you are in survival mode, your critical decisions will be different, such as whether to sell a stake or overhaul the business model.

2) Testing the structure

Sometimes structure is a serious obstacle to making and executing a business’ critical decisions.

In that case, structure must change.

Previously, Hewlett-Packard’s sales force was organised by customers while its manufacturing units were organised by products. With stalled decisions and people working at cross purposes, performance suffered.

The IT firm then moved to a product-based structure across the entire company, with accountabilities for decisions clearly defined. That created the conditions for better decision-making and execution, which in turn generated higher profits.

3) Clarifying roles and processes

Whatever a company’s structure, decision roles need to be clear. Unless people know who is responsible for making and executing critical decisions, stress on an organisation will only increase.

The individual or team responsible for a Recommendation gathers relevant information and proposes a course of action.

  • People with Input responsibilities help shape a recommendation so it is operationally practical and financially feasible.
  • An executive who must Agree is anyone who needs to sign off, often a legal or regulatory compliance officer.
  • Eventually, one person will Decide. Assigning the “D” to one individual ensures single-point accountability.
  • The final role in the process involves the people who will Perform or execute the decision.

Clear decision roles are essential amid turbulence. They can boost performance by unclogging bottlenecks and cutting the organisation’s cycle time.

4) Right people in right roles

In good times, companies focus on managing growing organisations. In a recession, the logic changes. Many companies cut costs through layoffs and attrition.

But the people who leave are not always the poorest performers. Those who stay may not have the skills to make and execute decisions. And companies often fail to consider who they might hire to bolster their capabilities.

In a downturn, no company can afford to have the wrong people in key decision roles.

At one IT company, we found that more than 40% of the managers identified as high performers were in non-critical positions. Meanwhile, fewer than 40% in mission-critical roles were top performers. The senior team quickly corrected the mismatch, and business performance immediately improved.

The key to making the best use of people is a robust, effective, performance-management system that has real consequences.

5) Actively managing the culture

Culture underpins an organisation’s decisions. But cultures change and are particularly susceptible to change when an organisation is in crisis.

In a downturn, leaders need to take action to keep a strong culture from deteriorating – or to transform a culture that hinders good decisions.

Understanding that its culture is a competitive advantage, Southwest Airlines reinforces it in hard times.

In the early stages of the current recession, it maintained staff loyalty (through no involuntary job cuts) and invested in upgrading customer service. The carrier continues to be one of the US leaders for on-time performance, an aspect of the business that customers care deeply about.

A strong organisation is not optional, something to worry about after the crisis. Your organisation’s strength will greatly affect how well your company weathers the storm.

It will also strongly improve your chances for growth once the storm passes.

5 KEY QUALITIES EVERY EMPLOYER LOOKS FOR IN A CANDIDATE

5911556_ml-e1393687330849

The job search is no easy undertaking. Each step of the process gets harder, requires more work and is more stressful. It’s difficult to sell yourself to strangers and anticipate what they want to hear. What qualities would make you more desirable for a position?

Obviously, there are various potential answers to that question, but it’s not as big a mystery as you might think. Desired skills and experience vary for job to job, but there are universal qualities every employer looks for in an employee. We’ve outlined some of those key qualities and why they are so important to employers. Have a look and see if you can improve those qualities in yourself and learn to sell them more effectively to employers.

Communication skills

Earlier this week, we featured an article looking at the essential skills of all great leaders. In that piece we explained how communication skills are one of the most important and overlooked qualities in a workplace. But it’s generally not overlooked by employers. They want to hire someone who can professionally and effectively communicate their message or their work to co-workers, management and clients. Demonstrating that ability shows the value you can bring to any position.

Self-confidence

Micro-managing is often looked at as a problem of the employer, but any employer hates having to monitor an employee who doesn’t have faith in their own work. A candidate can demonstrate the necessary skills and experience on paper, but they can fail to deliver in the actually position if they aren’t confident in their work. Self-confidence allows an employee to be innovative, take the initiative as well as the occasional risks. An employee with self-confidence inspires confidence in the employer.

Cooperation

Workplace relationships are extremely important for any position and at any level. Smart organizations thrive to have solid cooperation among all workers, so they tend to look for team players. Those who can share and collaborate with other often better their work and the work of their colleagues. Show employers you have a willingness to collaborate and they’ll want you on their team.

Tech savviness

Technology is becoming more and more significant for so many industries. The ways in which business is done is faster and easier thanks to the newest innovations. Boomers are often unfairly signalled out as a demographic who is behind in their tech savviness. To be fair, most boomers didn’t have access to a computer until their adult years, but that’s not to say they are lacking in the abilities more than anyone else. Each year there are new programs and software that employers need to become familiar with in order to stay current. Make sure you stay current. Stay up to date on your industry’s most significant tech, learn it and add it to the resume.

Ambition

When you’re looking for a job, you can be forgiven for having only short-term goals in mind. Hopefully you’re in a position where you’re able to search for the right job, but for some, they need the ‘right now’ job. While that’s fair enough, you need to understand that employers want someone who’s looking for more than a paycheck. They don’t want someone who is looking to wind down the clock until retirement. They want someone who is not finished climbing the ladder, someone who wants to learn and try new things and someone is passionate. Let them know you see a future with their organization and make it easier for them to picture you as a part of the team for a long time.
