The HRA Organizational Development plan will include the following elements:


  • Clearly written, state-compliant legal job descriptions.

  • Job Descriptions are a summary of the most important features of a job, including the general nature of the work performed, specific responsibility and employee characteristics and skills required to perform the job successfully.

  • Review of organizational design and alignment.

  • The starting point of any organizational plan is to understand the fundamentals of each position, how they support the overall company mission, and how they are functionally aligned.

  • Review of core competencies for each existing position.

  • In matching people to positions you look at a person’s information processing capability, their skilled knowledge, whether they value doing that work, and any other required behaviors.  It is important to utilize the fundamental accountability of each manager in this review. 

  • Overall Gap Analysis of Competencies and Deficits in the Organization.

  • Getting the positions right creates the “spine” for the organization.  If the “spine” is not aligned properly, then everything else is going to be suboptimal.  This includes clarity of accountabilities and authorities, matching people to positions, team working, etc.
