Designing Dynamic Organizations emerged from frequent requests by middle and senior managers for a workbook – with tools – to help them design their organizations.
This book was written for those who lead an organization and want to be sure that it is aligned to achieve their business strategy. This book will help you to:
Make choices about which organizational forms will best support your business strategy.
Understand the trade-offs and impact of each design decision.
Introduce flexibility and continuous change without losing the clarity that employees need to function effectively.
The book draws on the extensive consulting experience of Jay Galbraith with his clients around the world, as well as the in-depth work that Diane Downey and Amy Kates have conducted with their clients in organization assessment, design and implementation. The book is written from a practical, consulting-based approach and provides several tools and exercises to aid the manager in assessing options and making design decisions. It was developed to complement the comprehensive theories discussed in Jay Galbraith's book, Designing Organizations.
