What is organization diagnosis?
To gain a clear picture of the as-is situation.
The initial point of organizational development is the definition of the current state of the organization, the so called “organization diagnosis”.
Like at a medical check the constitution of the organization, is determined before the “patient”, the organization, can be strenghtened with effective measures in its further development.
Complex and expensive?!
The management doctrine has not yet come up with a simple, effective and largely utilisable tool for organizational diagnosis. The complexity and variance of terms and disciplines on the management surface is too big.
The organization that is interested in organization diagnosis normally can choose between three options: (1) A complex strong>analysis process, (2) a very simplified minimal view (i.e. SWOT) or (3) not to look at it at all.
