In many cases organizations are perceived as structures, when in reality they are much more. Organizations are a complex set of sub systems that must be aligned with one another and with the organization’s strategy.

 

The main factors for organizational design are:

  • Strategic change - Any change to the strategy requires change in the organization’s design.

  • Executive beliefs and habits –Executives usually believe that change in the organizations structure will result in better business performance.

  • Staffing – Despite the fact that the above-mentioned factors are relevant to organizational change, they do not necessarily lead to better business performance.
    It is our experience that a change in the organization’s structure has low correlation with business performance. Only a complete organizational re-design will improve the businesses performance.
