Keeping the organizational structure up to date with internal and external needs is a major challenge for many companies. Singular events like the acquisition of a competitor, or divestiture of operations may be a reason to restructure. More commonly, gradual developments that may involve redefinition of footprint or macro business processes require organizational adaptations.
Questions arise around the current and targeted organizational effectiveness and efficiency. How does the current setup support the company´s current and future business strategy? Which empowerment and resources should be allocated how? Fundamental topics like centralization versus decentralization, physical allocation of functions and assets across regions, paralleled by cost optimization concerns usually play a major role in the decision making process.
We support our clients by mapping the current organizational structure, functions and macro processes, and analyzing how the setup supports the current and future business strategy. Scenarios are developed to offer options for the subsequent internal opinion forming and decision making processes. After determining the desired structure, we develop with the client roadmap and action plans, and may accompany their effective implementation over time.
