To translate insight into action, Booz & Company have developed an online simulation tool that enables individuals to audition various ﬁve-step organizational change programs. After assessing the current state of your organization and diagnosing it as one of seven common types, you can select from among 28 speciﬁc actions that map to one or more of the organizational DNA building blocks—decision rights, information, motivators, or structure. Insights are provided that elaborate on the effects of each action. Once you have selected ﬁve actions, the simulation tool instantly charts your progress in improving your execution score. You are then provided the option to select ﬁve more actions in Year 2. The Organization Effectiveness Simulator serves as a vehicle to stimulate thinking about the impact of various changes and is useful in assessing and building a targeted and effective organization-transformation program.
