Organizational structure is a strategic choice and should not simply default to “what we’ve always done.”
Companies are often organized by skill set or primary tasks, not by authority or decision-making responsibilities. Structures rarely are designed to instill core values or magnify human potential. Does your current structure develop personnel, align decision-making authority with expertise, and facilitate the culture important to business success?
Understanding why you have your current organizational structure—and why a different structure might better facilitate endurance—is a great place to start.
