Organizational Structure and Organizational Chart Mastery
Mastery is an important word. In our world we refer to mastery as something you achieve. One measures mastery by your ability to teach others and train trainers. Our goal at OCOG is to train the trainer, to teach the leaders, to equip the student, to put them on the path to organizational structure mastery.
Self Guided Learning: On-line Video Courses
Our self lead on-line video courses are presented by Walt Brown, the creator of the OCM, and co-founder of OCog. Each video is accompanied by worksheets and handouts your can open or download. You can see the course outline here.
Group Live Workshops you can attend in person or virtually.
Once folk have dipped their toes in the water via the self guided learn programs, or in person facilitations, we find they like to gather to share their insights and advances with others who are students of the game. Sharpening their saws together.
We offer four quarterly workshops a year. We run these at the Rizzo Center in Chapel Hill NC, part of UNC. This is a train the trainer workshop, where you should be able to go back into your organization and run the facilitations to keep your Organizational Graph Data Model up to date.
Typical attendees are CEOs, COOs, CFOs, CPOs (people officers) they often bring along a key person or two. The group is always switched on; deep thinkers who are looking for the next big advantage, and they know this area of work is a big one.
Working – Team Facilitations and Coaching: Live and live virtual.
This is where it all began. For the last 12 years we have run 2,000+ day long group live facilitations inside companies helping harvest for the 14 Point Checklist answers.
C-Suite Focus: We run a specific program to harvest and create alignment around exactly who is accountable for thinking about what, insuring there are no gaps and that nothing is hitting the floor or slipping through the gaps. During this day we help the team see where there are inefficiencies and blind spots. No, this is not a reorganization, it is a meeting of the minds. We call this the inside ring of an organizational structure – getting thinking ownership out in the open is the flag of the day. We capture these thinking positions and add them to your organizational chart to create a more precise organizational structure. (Day Rate Range $4,250 – $7,500 + travel)
Individual Contributor Focus: We call this the outside ring and it starts way out in the organization, out where people can be forgotten, ignored. During these sessions we create buy-in, and cognizance and teach your people how to capture and document how the work really gets done in your company. Yes, very powerful. (Day Rate Range $2,250 – $7,500 + travel)
Middle Manager Focus: The center rings, always saved for last. This is the area of space, the final frontier, where a lot of your organization’s thinking and doing is taking place and maybe dropping through the cracks. By getting super clear on what needs to be thought about and who owns the thinking at the C-Suite level and then jumping over the middle to the frontlines, we basically create a no-mans land where there will be no where to hide. If you think you might have some fat hiding in the middle, or you think there is some untapped muscle lurking there, it will come to the surface and you will be able to deal with it efficiently and logically. (Day Rate Range $4,250 – $7,500 + travel)
Working – C Suite Consulting – Coaching – Facilitation
This work is mostly done by our founder Walt Brown – he works with organizations like Sandia National Laboratories in New Mexico, Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee and many other large Corporate organizations in the US. First teaching the C-Suite the Organizational Cognizance Method along with the 14 Point Org Cog Checklist and then running facilitations that helps the teams quickly get on the same page to the question: “Who is doing what and why?” These are the same lessons we capture in the Self-Lead learnings by the way, the organizational structure subject matter and the way it manifests in an organization chart (org graph) is just a bit more complex. (Current Day Rate $7,500 + travel)
Capture and Documentation Services
Some organizations are just “too busy” to lay down the initial tracks to capture and document the work our team does “in the room” extracting exactly what everyone is doing, why, how, with whom, when etc. We help clients organize the 14 Point organizational structure work we do together and then capture it in a modern day organizational chart, or rather organizational graph. (Billed hourly)
Who we work with
We work directly with companies and organizations as small as 15 people to as large as Sandia National Labs.
Our core business is engaging with organizations, starting with C Level leadership teams and sub teams one on one. This often manifests as 3 to 8 days running teams through the facilitations to flesh out their organizational structure, capture the model and get people up and running on the best practices around the Org Cognizance Model so their Og Chart are as powerful as possible.
We also consult around Graph Database software to capture your org graph.. Pricing is above and includes access to the Org Graph charting software.
