Are HR Initiatives Reinforcing or Distracting from Achieving Your Organisation's Goals?

Viewed from different angles, it is not clear whether the parts of the mobile sculpture (in the adjacent picture) will pass through each other or just collide.  When managing an organisation, it is not always clear whether the different parts are designed for their purpose and working in unison or indifferent to each other or on a collision path.   
Whether you lead a company, a school, a hospital or any other organisation, you will face challenges because your organisation is a living entity.  People bring life to the organisation but that is part of the predicament as they have different roles to carry out, different experiences, beliefs and aims.

You can design and control the processes used by your organisation but developing a common outlook and commitment amongst the individuals demands particular skills, innovative approaches and, at times, risk. 
Does the way in which you manage your staff reinforce the need for them to adapt to
customers' needs and economic conditions as those change?
If you are not sure, ask your senior managers the following questions - click on this link to see the questions.
One key is to understand what aspects of hr management will reinforce rather than detract from achieving your goals e.g. a high performance, 'customer' focused organisation.
Organisations face similar issues but their markets, capabilities and resources differ.
