The first truly practical guide for executives and managers who need to make restructuring decisions.
Which business structures are best suited to the unpredictable 21st century? How can a company, division, or department reconfigure itself with minimum disruption and maximum impact? Every executive grapples with problems of restructuring--and most need hands-on guidance to solve them. This eye-opening book shows business leaders at all levels how to examine their choices by leading them systematically through these fundamental questions:
* Should we restructure to meet our strategic goals?
* What are the best structural options to achieve our success?
* What lateral processes are necessary to support the new structure?
* How do we staff the restructured organization to optimize results?
Based on Galbraith's world-renowned approach, this guide includes examples and worksheets that pilot readers through the essential steps of organizational design.
