When we were involved in helping 4 different organisations spread across Wiltshire to merge together to create one new company we had a huge range of issues to consider. Getting the staff who had been working in competing organisations to work together in the new structure was a challenge. We had to decide on the location for each member of staff and size of each office and devise a new way of working to harness the best efforts of everyone. (See our case study here)
Our work in Birmingham with a community development company is a good example of this. Following the departure of the previous project manager there was a period of over a year when the centre operated without a paid manager. The Directors divided the management responsibility for the project amongst themselves but the detail and complexity of management tasks meant that vital aspects of the work were not done. We were able to step in and create an entirely new structure with new relationships and ways of working that transformed the company. (See our case study here)
