Organizational Structure

The organizational structure of your business impacts its performance. How? By affecting its behavior.

Think of success as a behavior: the behavior of your business as well as the behavior of your employees.

"Few efforts to produce significant organizational change succeed. Frustrated CEOs discover again and again that it's easier to change traditional organizational structure than traditional mental models. For example, an organization can be reengineered...but the same old people in the new organizational structure often produce the same results. Earlier studies by Ernst and Young and Arthur D. Little found that less than one third of the total organizational change programs started in the late 1980s and early 1990s had significant impact on profitability and a large fraction were discontinued within a couple of years…We seem somehow to think that we can get organizational change without personal change."
- Peter M. Senge, introduction to An Unused Intelligence, Conari Press, 1995.
