English term or phrase:siloed
The transformation at Agency B’s personnel division focused on enhancing the division’s strategic agility. While Agency B’s
HR function is typically focused on providing HR regulatory advice to the field offices, the department realized that it needed to focus on the agency as a whole and provide more of a corporate approach to HR problems. While the agency is planning to implement shared services for a variety of HR transactions, this has not yet been implemented and will not significantl y affect
the central personnel division. The structural changes enable specialists to serve as internal consultants who work together strategically. Specific changes are described in the bullets and figure below:
§ Eliminate ***siloed*** functional approach — Prior to the transformation, specialists in the division were siloed in specific functional areas employing functional knowledge.
§ Establish matrix work environment —The post-transformation structure supports the role of HR staff as organizational consultants
through a matrix design. Rather than working on functional areas, HR specialists are invited to volunteer for projects they would like to work on across functions. The new structure creates a teamwork environment that gives specialists the opportunity to use strategic HR consulting skills across various functions.
