‘Ground Zero’ your organisational structure

Monday, 17 September 2012 02:40 -     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}

As organisations age, their structures get firmly entrenched and run the risk of creating high cost, low agility bureaucracies. Consequently, their ability to sense and respond to new opportunities become impaired (think Kodak).Therefore, rather than make incremental changes to an organisational structure, it is a healthy exercise to go entirely ‘Ground Zero’. Assuming you have no limitations, what should your organisational structure look like? Then, work out how to get from current structure to the ideal. Do not let the implementation barriers get in the way of ‘Ground Zero’ thinking.
