Last week I wrote about key elements of restructuring. Here are a few more practical tips from my years of working with scores of organizations going through change:
- Your strategy is (hopefully) unique. That means your organization design also needs to be unique, so don’t go trying to copy what others have done.
- How people interact makes a huge difference — even in the digital age — so pay attention to proximity and interaction.
- Processes drive value, so a redesign needs to enable the few processes that drive most of that value.
Finally, make sure that your organization redesign avoids both gaps and overlaps in accountability.
