Competing With Flexible Lateral Organizations

This lateral capability enables companies to respond quickly and flexibly in an uncertain world where customers are ever more demanding and product/service life cycles are constantly shortening.

The book is unique in covering not only cross-functional (lateral and horizontal) coordination, but also international and corporate coordination issues.

Galbraith emphasizes management’s role in building capability by presenting guidelines for choosing the types and amounts of lateral organization for implementing different strategies.
