Biomatrix Systemic Organisation Transformation Programme


Organisations often respond to the changing business environment with a range of uncoordinated change initiatives. Organisations may find it expedient to build up their own change management capacity, but without a proper methodology, more than two-thirds of change interventions fail.

In response to this need, USB-ED in collaboration with BiomatrixWeb, presents the Biomatrix Organisation Transformation Programme. This 12-month learning intervention is both a consulting intervention and a management education programme. It provides a methodology for transforming the client organisation into a sustainable learning matrix that can creatively respond to on-going change. Selected members of the organisation are educated on the theory of systemic organisational development and change management, and are then guided to apply the theory to the design and implementation of the organisation’s transformation.

The effective delivery of the programme requires eight teams, each tasked with a specific aspect of the organisation’s transformation. With a minimum of three team members, the total number of programme participants is 24. The programme is designed to be delivered in modules, and can be customised to the unique requirements of the client organisation.

Target Audience

Every organisation will benefit from becoming a learning matrix that is wired for creative and sustained development. Organisations seeking to revitalise latent energy, or those that are faced by threats to their survival would need this intervention urgently in order to innovate and reinvent themselves, while problem-riddled and uncoordinated organisations would need it to create a stable basis from which to change. Bureaucratic or stale organisations would need the programme as a stimulant for creativity.

To ensure a high-level organisational focus, managers that are destined for senior and executive positions should be selected as programme participants. A top management representative should be included to steer the project. Also, the involvement and alignment of stakeholders throughout the programme will help to prepare the organisation for transformation.

What does it cover

  • Programme scoping and management 
    This phase consists of setting up a Programme Steering Committee, selecting the programme participants and determining the timetable for programme delivery. The ongoing management of the project involves meetings with the committee, as well as regular feedback reports and presentations to top management. A workshop with members of top management is suggested in order to familiarise them with the theory and methodology, and to customise the programme according to the organisation’s requirements.

  • Generating stakeholder inputs
    The programme participants (or BiomatrixWeb on behalf of the Programme Steering Committee) administer an organisation-wide diagnostic and brainstorming survey to elicit specific stakeholder inputs. The data are used to customise the programme design.

  • Learning the theoretical concepts
    This phase involves individual e-learning consisting of video lectures and template-driven exercises. Each participant learns about systemic business development, organisation development and change management. The theoretical and methodological knowledge is grounded in Biomatrix systems theory which is a comprehensive theory of system organisation. Case studies based on management consulting experience are provided.

  • Redesigning the organisation 
    Teams of participants are guided to apply the learned concepts to the redesign of the organisation as a learning matrix. This phase involves action learning in facilitated team sessions.

  • Redesigning the personal work-function 
    Participants redesign their personal work-function within the context of the transformed organisation, using templates provided by the programme. These are submitted as individual assignments.
