Organization Transformation

Consider the following facts:

  1. Your organization's top management has created a 15-year-blueprint. The new direction setting has redefined your organization's existing vision, mission, and strategies
  2. Next action item is to operationalize those long-term strategies. Realignment to the line of sight. Convert the abstracts into measurable milestones. In the meantime, your organization may need to transform the current structure, process, system, policy, and people (cannot use the old presumptions, anymore)
  3. Unfortunately, your organization does not possess internal capability to spearhead such transformation from within. Credibility (of the HR Department) is also an issue. Thus, the top management has created a Request for Proposal (RfP) and invited seven world-class transformation consulting firm to participate in the project. In the end, only four firms submitted the final proposal
  4. A technical evaluation committee (TEC) is entrusted to review and evaluate the proposals. Besides teh normal criteria, it is also an option for the TEC to reject all proposals, if none deems fit the requirements
  5. You are appointed as one of the members of TEC. You are also supposed to provide your 'subject-matter-expert' on the "people and competence" aspect of the proposal

Upon the review and evaluation of the consulting firms, you find out that only two organizations worth to be considered. Shortlisted process began. Final recommendation on one firm was made and submitted to the approving body.

The approving body requested TEC to reconsider the other two proposals that have not been shortlisted in the first place.

Do you agree with the approving body?
