The Royal Hospital Effectiveness Case Study — How Manager Effectiveness Improves Organization Performance

Dwight Mihalicz,

Proper managerial leadership is a critical factor in the effectiveness of organizations in any industry. Unfortunately, it’s not always a priority for organization leaders, which may result in decreased efficiency and problems in the internal processes of the organization.

Even if an organization is only striving to improve its already decent structure and managerial leadership, the process can make a huge difference. The Royal Hospital in Canada was one of the organizations that adopted the Effective Point of Accountability methodology and had impressive results to show for it. Let’s take a closer look at the case study and see how good managerial leadership can improve an organization’s effectiveness.

Why Organizational Performance Matters for Becoming Best in Class

Dwight Mihalicz,

Organizations can function and find success in their industry even without becoming the best in class. However, being best in class is often the goal of many a business owner embarking into providing a particular service or launching their first product into the market. Without ambition to eventually be the best or at least very close to the top, keeping up the drive to persevere through obstacles can be hard. Of course, one of the main aspects that determine whether an organization will be at the top of their sector is organizational performance.

The Future of Management Consulting

Dwight Mihalicz,

Consulting has grown into a vast industry, measuring over $250 billion with an average annual growth of 4.3%. Looking at management consulting as an industry of its own after excluding financial and IT consulting, it still leaves us with an annual turnover total of $130 billion. These stats show that many companies are using management consulting services, but despite the industry’s evident growth, we still need to consider its future.

Accountability for Cross-Functional Work

Dwight Mihalicz,

Part 5 of the Effective ManagersTM Understanding Accountability Series

As we know, accountability within an organization is one of the most critical concepts that leaders and managers should master. Understanding accountability and implementing the Effective Point of Accountability methodology leads to increased efficiency and better organizations.

However, things aren’t always so simple when it comes to determining the Effective Point of Accountability for cross functional work. Especially in this case, there may be some overlap between the departments working on the same project, which would prove to be challenging. How do you determine where the Effective Point of Accountability is when it comes to the delegation of cross-functional work?
