Organisations overtime have redesigned their structures into more flexible forms such as process-based structures that design sub-divisions around the organisation's core work processes, and network-based structures that link the organisation to other, interdependent organisations. Ziyana Business Consulting and Training assists organisation redesign their organisation by assessing various contingencies influencing structural design such as environment, organisation size, strategy, technology, geological operations.  
  • Job analyses / profiling
Job profiling is used to develop a working definition of each job in an organisation and determine the appropriate pay for each position. Additionally, job profiling can help you hire the right people to perform the duties you need to reach your company goals. Job profiling also allows you to create a potential career path for your employees as well as conduct analyses of the various job performance requirements.  
  • Change Management
Change management is the process of helping individuals and your organisation transition from the current state to the desired state. It involves tools, skills, and best practices. A change management process can be organisation-wide and involve every employee, or it can be more narrowly focused on a department, a workgroup, or an individual. The more people who are involved, the more time, energy, and commitment are needed.

These templates are customised based on what level an employee is in the organisation and which department an employee role is in? We offer training on how to perform appraisals for managers and induct these performance appraisals to employees in collaboration with managers.
