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.
