Description of Organizational DNA. Explanation.


Definition Organizational DNA. Description.

Organizational DNA is a metaphor created by consultancy firm Booz Allen Hamilton for the underlying factors that together define an organization’s “personality” and help explain its performance.

It is made out of 4 building blocks, which combined largely determine how an organization behaves, and whether it can achieve results:

  1. Decision Rights. The underlying mechanics of how decisions are truly made.

  2. Information. Accurate and available information.

  3. Motivators. Money and all of the objectives, incentives, and career opportunities that prompt people to care and achieve.

  4. Structure. This should be the capstone, not the cornerstone, of most reorganization efforts.
