Organisation

Poor organisation strongly affects the performance of a company, resulting in lost money, wasted time and high staff turnover.

If you are considering launching a start-up, defining a solid structure for your business will allow you to get off to a good start immediately. If your company has already been in existence for several years, an analysis of its current organisation can highlight any weaknesses and reveal new opportunities. A reorganisation can then be considered to increase your performance.

Laying out your company’s objectives, the resources available to achieve them, the different departments and their relationships with each other, defining roles, responsibilities and the distribution of activities… These are the different elements to be taken into consideration in order to structure your activity and ensure that you have a better idea of the missions to be accomplished, the key positions, the skills required for each task, the training to be put in place, etc.

Our training courses provide you with the keys to structuring your start-up company or to analysing the organisation of your existing company in detail, targeting areas for improvement and reorganisation in order to save time, reduce costs and make management more fluid.

Organisation chart

An organisation chart is a very useful tool for laying out the structure of your company. It enables the organisational structure to be formalised in a diagram, representing the departments, the relationships between these departments, the managers, the staff, etc.

In short, the organisation chart provides a clear picture of how your business is organised. You can see at a glance who is responsible for what in the company, which tasks are essential, what they involve or how your various departments interact.

This tool can be used for the overall structure of your company but also at more specific levels.

Creating a good organisation chart and keeping it up to date helps to summarise how the company works and the roles and responsibilities within it, so that every employee has a clear view of what they are responsible for. Well-defined tasks and roles leading to better performance.

It allows for better management of resource allocation and task distribution.

A training course will take you through all the thinking needed to create a solid organisational chart to help you bring more clarity to your organisation and grow your business in the future.

Defining the needs

An assessment of your company’s needs is always useful in order to take stock, review your objectives and aim for ever greater performance and competitiveness.

What are the goals for your company today ? What are the issues you wish to address ?

If your company has been in business for several years, are the processes in place still adequate ? Are there any areas of tension that could still be improved ? What are the current needs in view of the progress made ? Should a new service be developed ? Should new processes be introduced to meet new objectives ?

If your business is struggling or stagnating, what are the current needs that would allow it to regain a balance ? Have processes been put in place to ensure the smooth running of operations ? Is the company structure optimal ? Do employees tell you about problems they frequently encounter in carrying out their tasks ?

Training to understand how to clearly delineate your current needs will help you identify where to focus your business next.

Setting priorities

Not all of the company’s needs can be met simultaneously, so it is important to prioritise in order to take the time to manage each need carefully.

Without careful consideration, you risk wasting resources on seemingly urgent but low-priority issues, only to be left with insufficient resources for tasks that actually contribute to the development of your business.

Through our training courses, you will learn what criteria to use to classify the importance of the problems to be solved and how to establish a sequence of events that will enable you to respond most effectively to your needs.

Resource-based agenda

If you have set the objectives for your company and your needs are well defined, another question arises: how long do you want the problems identified to be resolved ? Or rather, how quickly can you solve these problems with the resources at your disposal ?

The budget allocated, the presence or absence of an in-house team that can take charge of the mission… different elements that will influence the speed with which a need can be handled.

Training will teach you how best to estimate the timeframe of your development project, taking into account the objectives to be achieved, the solutions envisaged to achieve these objectives and the resources that can be mobilised.

Measured evolution

In the analysis of your structure, it may emerge that you have certain needs, whether it is a question of introducing a new process or setting up a new workstation in your IT infrastructure.

If you know what you want to achieve for your business, if you know what changes you want to make to develop your business, you need to plan when these changes will take place. When will you need a new workstation, for example ? When should the equipment be ordered and installed ?

MCA Seed Academy offers training that will allow you to set deadlines and plan your installations so that you can ensure the evolution of your structure while keeping a close eye on your budget.

Keeping up with social demands

Social requirements are moving towards digital, driven by the Confederation. For example, banks are evolving by linking banking institutions with ERP software to manage secure payments, bank statements, and more, with the adoption of QR codes for invoices or for the distribution of information, or even with online VAT statements.

This move to digital is also exemplified by the establishment of platforms such as the one-stop shop. Platform linked to the administrations of the canton of Neuchâtel allowing certain administrative procedures to be carried out online, such as the payment of bills or the purchase of a parking permit.

Digitalisation will soon extend to all departments, which is why MCA Seed Academy offers you training courses aimed at making you aware of the new social requirements and providing you with a range of means and methods enabling you to meet these requirements effectively.
