Organization Design

A Practical Methodology and Toolkit


Leaders often struggle when faced with the challenge of restructuring or rightsizing their organizations or redesigning reporting relationships. Don’t make the mistakes many make when they fail to do appropriate due diligence by addressing the symptoms of the perceived business problem rather than the root causes. Check out this practical and informative book first. As the title suggests, it is a real-world guide to organization design. It is written by a global corporate executive and management consultant with 25 years of experience advising senior executives on strategic change. And it is a rich resource of insight and hands-on templates and tools designed to ensure you succeed at one of the toughest jobs a leader will face. Organization Design is organized into two sections. Section I presents a primer for executives on organization design. Section II introduces organization design methodology. Included are practical templates to help you quantitatively prioritize design alternatives, formalize and clarify the project, optimize how interdependent units work together, compare and contrast the financial impacts of each design alternative, conduct a sanity check regarding the future state of the organization, guide the design of the organization from selection of the high-level structure to designing roles and jobs, and handle all the vital tasks ahead with confidence.
