Sort order. I have been looking at this, on and off, for a while. This is a fairly good text that stands out in an undistinguished area.
Want to change an organization? Simple, decide on what you want to do.
Then, specify the details of the change into some plan. It will encompass much more than simply I have been looking at this, on and off, for a while. It will encompass much more than simply changing the formal structure. Then implement the plan and see what happens. This will requires sustained active management over the course of an extended change period. It sounds like I am oversimplifying but this is the punchline.
Efforts to reduce this chain of events into a book, however, seriously err towards oversimplification and avoidance of tough questions. The particular problem is that of redefining the problem in the form of a solution. Your problem is that you are poor? The answer is simple - get money!

For the general story, she teams with Jay Galbraith, who was one of the most established gurus in the area he passed away in This means that the story line being presented here is a reasonable and well established one. By the way, the Galbraith STAR model refers to the need to manage five distinct organization design challenges: strategy, structure, people, rewards, processes.
To this, Kates adds an emphasis on the matching of organizational capabilities to the relevant environment through the appropriate use of structure. Doing this well will require the active use of data analysis throughout the process. She does a good job in showing where actively analyzing changes can help in managing them. As important, she provides examples for her points. This is important so that the people managing a change can communicate it to others in the organization and to those with whom a firm must deal.
