As a leader, you want to know “Who is doing what and why?”


But there is a problem, we are really asking this deeper question… “Do my people know these things about their job?”

The purpose of their job

The positions they fill in their jobs

Who they report to

Who they are mentored by

Where they go for coaching

What teams they are a part of

What meetings they should attend

What entities they interact with

What workflows they participate in

What processes they maintain or follow

What systems they interface with

What their objectives are

What their key results are

What skills they need

What if things could be different?

Imagine what it would be like if your people understood and embraced this 14 Point Checklist about their job.

“The really cool thing about using an Org Graph was to get all of our people into the game. Once our Individual Contributors saw how this was something we were doing “For Them” instead of “To Them”, they bought in and the Org Graph bloomed with amazing detail – all supplied by the people who really know what’s going on, amazing.”

“When I sat down, faced the reality, and modeled the cost to my company of not bringing new people up to speed using the 14 Point Checklist, I saw it was in the hundreds of thousands.”

“Our engagement is up, our teams are more effective, people are able to go directly to the right person for an answer, when we want to change something we can SEE who it will impact and get them involved. All of this was hidden in the past behind layers of folders and files, text and outlines, never in simple diagrams and pictures, very powerful.”

Is this for me?

Learning how to teach and facilitate The Organizational Cognizance® Model is a valuable skill you can carry with you for the rest of your professional life.

What is Organizational Cognizance?

“Who is doing what, and why?” Question From Every Modern Day CEO

“What am I doing, and why?” Question From Every Modern Day Worker

What we mean by Organizational Cognizance® starts with reflecting on the natural gap between the two quotes above. A CEO wants to quickly understand: “Who is doing what, and why?” An IC (Individual Contributor) wants to be able to easily answer: “What am I doing, and why?” They both want the answers to be a click away, self serve, up to date, relevant and complete. They want the answers to provide direction and create cognizance around priorities and importance.

Why the word Cognizance and not Awareness?

Our founder, Walt Brown, likes to put it this way:

“We have 5 senses, we can feel, hear, smell, taste and see, these senses make us aware. So, let’s say we smell smoke, we are aware that we are smelling smoke, but when we know that what we are smelling is smoke from the cozy fire in the den, and not an electrical fire in the wall, that is cognizance. We believe everyone in a company should be given the opportunity to be organizationally cognizant from the C Suite to the frontline worker”.
