Organizational analysis is the process of appraising the growth, personnel, operations, and work environment of an entity. Undertaking an organizational analysis is beneficial, as it enables management to identify areas of weakness and then find approaches for eliminating the problems. Important aspects of organizational analysis include the assessment of external elements that can influence the performance of an organization. An organizational analysis also includes strategically evaluating an organization’s potential and resource base.
Organizational analysis focuses on the structure and design of the organization and how the organization’s systems, capacity and functionality influence outputs. Additional internal and external factors are also accounted for in assessing how to improve efficiency. Undertaking an organizational analysis is helpful in assessing an organization’s current well-being and capacity, and deciding on a course of action to improve the organization’s long-term sustainability. A restructuring of an Organization may become necessary when either external or internal forces have created a problem or opportunity for improvement in efficiency and effectiveness.
The prime focus of this course is to provide a brief overview of the areas that are included while conducting organizational analysis and further offers comprehensive insight regarding entire process.
