An organizational analysis may be requested in order to review a department’s efficiency. Organizational analyses at Kansas State University look at the structure and design of a department to determine how this influences total output in meeting the objectives of the unit. Individual attributes of the employees currently working in the department are also analyzed in order to determine the best potential organizational structure. Additional internal and external factors can also be accounted for in assessing how to improve efficiency.
After the organizational analysis is completed, the reviewer will meet with the individual requesting the study in order to present his or her findings. This wrap-up session often comes with a variety of alternative organizational charts, along with the pros and cons that might come with any potential changes.
