When did you have your last reorganisation?
A year ago?
A few months?
Are you in the middle of one at the moment?
And... did it yield any results yet?
The figurehead of a reorganisation is a new org-chart or rake as it is popularly called. Such a rake is a simplification of reality. The relations between departments are lost. Customers and suppliers are absent.
The solutions is obvious: Abolish the rake. Get rid of the org-chart as we know it and let's move on to a organisation structure that does match reality. The alternative: a conglomerate of cells, an organisation structure that matches the business process naturally. Every cell is a collective of one or more individuals that has client-supplier relations with other cells.
It is a working system. In Malaysia I've run several times into this organisation form, especially during lunch hour.
The fierce competition forces the hawkers to maximum efficiency. Their organisation is very lean and mean indeed. There is no overhead what so ever. Everybody works, directly or indirectly, with maximum commitment for the customer.
For example, a reorganisation of the rake at the top of this page could result into the structure shown here. Complex? Well, just as complex as reality.
Lots of strength with your final reorganisation. Final? Yes, that's what I help you hope for.
