We design organisations
that work better

Via purposeful operating models, structures, career frameworks and workforce planning

Is your organisation striving to be more efficient and effective?

Are you aiming for growth - through customers or acquisitions, or through people and capabilities?

Is hybrid working, the competition for talent, or the rush on skills impacting your agility?

Have you considered that it might be your organisational models,

not just your operational methods, that hold the answer?

What is Organisation Design?

Organisation design involves a range of methods that align the capabilities and structure of an organisation to its strategy, which can be applied at enterprise, business unit or team level

Creating Value Through Great Organisational Design

Great organisational progress is rooted in great organisational design. Successful businesses have strong foundations - a clear vision, strategy, business/operating model and structure. Effective businesses maintain these foundations - and their customer value - through regular replanning, readjustment and redesign.


Enabling Ambition

From strategic visioning right through to employee experience, go beyond basic boxes and wires to ensure your organisation design truly contributes to your enterprise’s strategic goals.


Keeping It Simple

Tap into our extensive, diverse experience for the right design approach to meet your needs, so we can focus together on what really matters and where the value really lies.


Developing Together

Merge your deep organisational knowledge and experience with our organisational design expertise, tools and networks into a powerful learning partnership that transforms your internal OD capability.

Organisations We Have Partnered With

What do our clients say about us?

 Kanso integrated into our teams, ably respecting their availability and time commitments, whilst still delivering the outcomes to budget and on time.

Great to work with the team at Kanso on setting our team up for success. You delivered a project at pace, quickly understanding our challenges and opportunities. 

Their experts understood our requirements and culture and came up with a solution that provided just the right mix of good practice, technical rigour and pragmatic advice.

What's In A Name?

Kanso is about creating simplicity – eliminating clutter to express ideas and achieve clarity in a simple, natural way For us, this is the essence of great organisation design.


However, simplicity is not always simple to achieve. In organisation design, the route can often be complex and the final answer may not be perfect or ever fully complete.

We believe the moment you deliver your target design is often the moment you need to start evolving it. That’s why Kanso’s brand is represented by a version of a symbol known as the Enso circle. Enso symbolises enlightenment, strength and elegance – all great traits of simplicity and strong design.


However, Enso is also about recognising that in the pursuit of Kanso (simplicity), change will be continual (the circle), is not always perfect (the non-uniform circle) and that you need to allow for potential, growth and renewal (the incomplete circle).


This is how we at Kanso have always experienced, and always strive to deliver great organisation design.
