We defined the organization configuration map (the WHAT) divided on 3 main areas: BEING, BECOMING and BEHAVING. BEING defines the identity of the organization, like a human being and identifies its business model, structure, governance and resources. BECOMING defines what the organization wants to be in the future and identifies its ends, means, influencers, business processes, assessment and potential impact. To further clarify organizational options and provide the bridge from planning to execution, the strategy map/balanced scorecard, context diagram and activity plan concepts were added.
Repeatable decisions. Situations from the past would have to be recognized in order to identify if the same decisions can be applied with success. Two examples are in order to clarify the problem: Aircraft O with the mission to fly from point A to point E to deliver T tons of cargo at time TE. The aircraft transports 20 tons of cargo and has 4 crew members, member CM1 to CM4, and 4 engines. To get to point E the organizational configuration entails a strategy of flying at flight 22 C. Páscoa, D.
The result of applying DEMO to devising an organizational configuration shows that there are 19 actor roles. Reverting to the original proposal we are now able to argue that these actor roles can be part of the composite actor roles with some exceptions. Depending on the organization size and on the context we identify four kinds of composite actor roles: − The monitor, who is handling the arrival of influencer facts. − The analyst, that assesses impact on the wholeness of the organization of a certain influencer impact and builds a proposal based on previously analyzed organizational configuration elements that entail the modification of organizational artifacts.
