Organization design models for the planning and reporting function
Examples of planning and reporting delivery model options include:
Decentralized delivery model. Planning is done mainly at the sector, branch or regional level, by planning/ resource management advisors. A small corporate planning group provides strategic direction and supports planning at the corporate level.
Decentralized model with collaboration through planning network. Planning advisors report organizationally at the sector, branch or regional level; and collaborate through planning networks and committees. A small corporate planning group provides functional direction, coordinates planning and reporting processes at the organizational level, and prepares corporate plans/ reports.
Centralized distributed model. A corporate planning and reporting group is responsible for all planning activities; planning and reporting advisors report centrally but are dedicated to branches/ sectors/ regions and may be co-located with them. Alternatively, each planning advisor may support planning for a cluster of branches.
Centralized delivery model. A single planning and reporting group is responsible for all planning activities in the organization; and provides centralized planning support to sectors, branches and regions.
