Leading Organization Design outlines a scalable, five-step process to help senior business leaders, supported by skilled human resources or OD professionals, make smart design decisions. While being careful to ensure that a company's organization design is not more complex than necessary, expert authors Greg Kesler and Amy Kates show how the ability to design and manage an organization that can execute complex strategies brings competitive advantage over firms whose management can only do one thing well. With insights from extensive consulting work around the world and their research on many large multinationals, the authors reveal how to generate and evaluate the right design options, how to set up governance and management processes to align power effectively in the matrix, and how to engage the right people in implementing difficult organization changes.
