Leadership advisory

Our organisation design service enables leaders and committed shareholders to deliver step changes in performance, reach their vision and implement their strategy through people.

We help our clients design their organisational structure, key principles and processes with the best qualified people as well as anticipate and prepare for the next change.

“Human by Design” breaks the mould of traditional organisation design. It is a cutting-edge tool and an evolving transformative approach to fundamentally rethink how to organise, energise and motivate talent within today’s perspective, resulting in exponential change in performance for the whole company. We combine business insights with advanced organisational and behavioural sciences to deliver tailor made and agile transformation.

We don’t just help define optional organisational charts, but also challenge governance models and ensure they are adapted to fit the business challenges and strategy of each company. Much more than ”boxology”, our organisation design service supports you in designing a new organisational model along with a governance model and key principles

Case study

Strengthening accountability and efficiency


A private equity firm acquired an industrial company of circa €600M turnover, with a global footprint. The company is highly product driven and lacks commercial savviness and operational efficiences in some geographies.


The 3Ds: Diagnose, Design and Deliver

Through initial discussions with the PE firm and the company’s CEO, we collected information such as strategic plans and organisation charts then identified points for attention and issues. Based on this we made preliminary assumptions and conducted deep structured interviews with the top management worldwide (~50 people). We looked into external benchmarks in parallel.
With all the information gathered, we proposed two organisational options, each assessed against a limited number of criteria (such as efficiency, customer orientation, results focus) and a governance body with a clear agenda


One of the two options has been chosen and implemented with a clear focus on simplification and people accountability. A couple of new managers have joined the company and helped to reinforce the change; this was an opportunity for the CEO to bring in some fresh thinking and add it to the existing team’s capabilities
