Structure & Process is a small, European organisational development firm. We build organisational structures and work processes that make sense and improve team collaboration. We are particularly interested in self-organising / self-governing structures and making “non-hierarchic” structures work.
We believe in the abilities of the individual, and the synergy of community. We look for balance in all things: individuality and collective work, work and not-work, action and non-action. We seek beauty, ease, effectiveness, joy, meaning, connection and purpose.
The company was founded in Finland in 2012 by Juliane Röll and Tanja Korvenmaa. Today, it consists of five colleagues, three of whom are currently active:
Juliane came into leadership positions early, founding her first two companies at the ages of 16 and 18 respectively.
Juliane studied business economics at TU Dresden and became an IT project manager and a freelance e-business consultant in 2001. An early blogger, she became a well-known expert on the impacts of the internet, especially social media on organisations and society.
Juliane quit consulting work in 2009 to practise Buddhism intensely. From 2009-2010, she lived at Won Kwang Sa International Zen Temple (Esztergom, Hungary) and Providence Zen Center (Cumberland, Rhode Island), where she worked as a builder, gardener, cleaner and cook. She participated in three intense 90-day silent retreats, leading two of them as Head Dharma Teacher.
Back in lay society, Juliane worked as a personal coach for entrepreneurs from 2010-2012 while continuing to serve as a meditation teacher in the Kwan um School of Zen.
In 2012, Juliane co-founded Structure & Process to discover and explore new ways of collaborating, both in her own company and with client organisations.
Juliane is a pioneer practitioner of Holacracy in Europe and an active member of the community developing the Holacracy Constitution. She is a member of the Open Space Technology community, the Art of Hosting community, the European Consultants Camp, and a practitioner of Non-Violent Communication. Juliane is an improv dancer and a person of transgender experience.
