Organization modeling

Model the future, assess the impact of your decisions and get your business where it needs to be.

Model the future at pace and scale, and design your business with confidence

Planning and visualizing the future of the workforce is becoming crucial for businesses to thrive.  The process of designing large organizations, choosing a direction and implementing it can often catch business off-guard. With the amount of data scattered across different systems, departments and markets, it can be challenging to see the financial implications on certain basic metrics and the slow and manual overall process. There is a need for a data-driven technology, purpose-built for businesses to model the future of their workforce, so they can move forward and implement change with certainty and confidence.

How Orgvue works for org modeling

Orgvue has a defined approach to org modeling, but adaptable to different organizations and their needs

Visualize your current state and identify areas that need attention

Use Orgvue’s pre-built visuals to see your organization as a whole, align with your strategic goals and decide which areas need your attention.

Model your workforce with drag-and-drop

Build scenarios through a series of ‘drafts’ and compare ‘as-is’ with ‘to-be’. Whether it’s at enterprise level or at a more detailed level, try out different scenarios, and see which one helps you achieve your business objectives before you commit. 

Take a ‘what if’ approach to building scenarios

Design and model multiple viewpoints by asking “what if” questions​. Connect decision making to data across the organization and easily test, adopt, amend or discard scenarios such as:

  • What if my whole workforce went remote?
  • What if I wanted to cut costs from a specific department?
  • What if I outsourced a specific position?
  • What if I outsourced my creative team?

Instantly see the impact of your decisions

As you’re working on your design, Orgvue will allow you to accelerate speed to insight by showing you the impact of scenario changes to FTE, cost, depth, spans of control or any other metric. You’ll be able to manage multiple workstreams with separate ‘drafts’ based on the structure of your project, and compare and remodel in a safe, risk-free environment. 

Connect decision making to data across the organization and easily test, adopt, amend or discard scenarios. 

Compare the impact of changes against the baseline and extract powerful visuals

Review the design impact on a position at a detailed level and at an enterprise level. Compare your models against the baseline, and manage the change process through visual reports for stakeholder engagement ahead of incorporating into plans​
