Principal of AlignOrg Solutions, Reed Deshler, specializes in developing strategic organization designs and helping companies bring them to fruition. As an organization consultant, Reed works with executive teams and human resource teams to define winning strategies, align their organization and business models for success and mobilize employees and stakeholders in the desired direction. He’s guided Fortune 500 companies — including Danaher, Tyco, 3M, Abbott Laboratories, Hertz, Cummins, Cisco, and Honda — as well as middle market businesses and nonprofits through change successfully and helped them solve complex organizational challenges. Reed is coauthor of Mastering the Cube: Overcoming Stumbling Blocks and Building an Organization that Works, a guidebook that Clayton M. Christensen, professor at the Harvard Business School calls, “a great step-by-step manual on defining and changing the design of your company.” This guide outlines AlignOrg Solutions’ organization alignment process, which pinpoints the most common stumbling blocks to a company’s success and methods for turning challenges into building blocks that align strategy with the reality of day-to-day operations. Prior to AlignOrg Solutions, Reed held a variety of HR leadership and line leadership positions that cemented his understanding of the complex organizational challenges many companies face. He regularly writes and speaks on issues related to organization transformation and ways to implement — and create buy-in — among stakeholders for new business designs. Reed participates in a variety of organizations including The Conference Board and the Human Resource Policy Association.
