8 Characteristics of Organizational Effectiveness

8 Characteristics of Organizational Effectiveness

Organizational effectiveness can be defined as how effective a group or organization is in achieving the results and outcomes the organization is tasked to produce.  Ethics plays a big role in organizational effectiveness as well as how it communicates internally and externally. All three work hand in hand to bring sense to whether or not the organization is accomplishing its goals.

While relatively abstract, organizational effectiveness is very difficult to measure, but it can be framed with eight characteristics to give it some depth and structure.

What measures can you develop for these eight characteristics?

  1. Purpose and Direction
  2. Performance Standards
  3. Reward and Recognition
  4. Participation and Teamwork
  5. Coordination and Cooperation
  6. Formal Support Systems
  7. Human Resources Development
  8. Relationship to the External
