In today's fast-moving business world, major company reorganisations are triggered by mergers, acquisitions and sell-offs. Suddenly, disparate systems, people and processes are brought together in a way that seems exciting and challenging all at once.
But even if there's no change to the outside walls of your enterprise, internal developments can prompt a radical overhaul too. New products, services, strategies and priorities can create unstoppable momentum for change that ripples out to everyone in every office.
Departments can disappear overnight, new divisions are added, reporting structures get tweaked and workflow is channelled in new directions. You might decide to centralise to gain economies of scale - or outsource certain, non-core functions to reduce their costs.
Budgets, timelines and launches are all put in place. Everything starts moving quickly. But hang on...
STOP. Are you missing something important?
With so many changes going on, it's easy to focus solely on the headline benefits. Mergers mean competitive strength, acquisitions deliver new capabilities, and sell-offs can result in a nimbler, more focused operation. Restructuring can mean greater efficiency and agility.
