Current business realities and change drivers place increasing responsibility on senior management to assess their organisational effectiveness in order to ensure that business goals can be achieved. This entails a regular review of aspects such as culture, structure, roles, processes, systems and procedures and their alignment to the business strategy and goals.

Conducting organisation development (OD) activities in order to achieve organisational effectiveness is a primary role of leaders as well as of those people who support them in these endeavours e.g. managers, change agents, internal and external consultants.
