Organisational Analysis

Organisational analysis

AIOS advises public authorities and companies on organisational design and processes, aiding them in optimising existing structures and setting up effective steering mechanisms. We focus on the investigation, evaluation and adaptation of task and organisational structures of authorities and institutions of the federal and state government. Our work is conducted in accordance with the manual for organisational studies and analyses of staffing needs, provided by the Federal Ministry of the Interior (MOI) and the Federal Office of Administration (OA).

Drawing on many years of experience from numerous large organisational projects, AIOS can support its clients from the theoretical set-up throughout the practical implementation of organisational structures and personnel policies with benchmark data and tested best practices. Our clients additionally benefit from our detailed knowledge in public administration standards and procedures.

Organisational analysis

Organisational investigations are our specialty. We are active in this area at all federal levels and have particularly extensive experience at federal level.

Standardised BI tools for the analysis phase

In the analysis phase of an organisational investigation, the necessary data is collected from the client using a standardised application. Thanks to our many years of experience and in-house expertise in the area of Business Intelligence, we can offer individually tailored web forms for data collection with comprehensive data validation. This allows to minimise the time, cost and effort on the part of our clients while guaranteeing high data quality.

Determine staffing needs

Authorities are constantly confronted with the problem of changing task structures. The existing job equipment is quickly outdated and new tasks are added without creating new jobs.

With a professional analysis of staffing needs, we help public-sector clients to determine their current and future personnel needs. A methodologically rigorous and transparent derivation of staffing needs is a prerequisite for our clients to prove and apply for additional funds.

5.5 IT-Consulting

Active support for IT tendering procedures

The IT component in organisational and process consulting is stronger than ever before. Whether as an instrument for consulting or as a recommendation in the completion of a consulting project, the need for IT concepts and customized applications is increasing.

Our colleagues in IT consulting develop IT concepts and sourcing models. We have been successfully supporting IT procurement procedures at all federal levels for years:
