Jay Galbraith

The authors describe how to create an organization with high levels of employee involvement and new roles for managers.

They detail the use of new organizational forms, including knowledge work and managerial teams, structuring human resource systems around skill levels and creating such new types of organizations as distributed staffs and virtual networks. And they explain how all organizational structures can be aligned to move information, power, knowledge and rewards downward to maximize performance throughout the organization.

What People Are Saying

  • “A unique organization structure creates advantage. The key advantage of our structure is that the MDOs [Market Development Organizations] can focus 100% of their resources on local customers and customers without duplicating product innovation, product sourcing, brand advertising or other activities that are now led by the Global Business Units. We have eliminated inefficient overlaps and, as a result, freed up resources to collaborate better with customers and focus exclusively on winning in local markets.”

    — A.G. Lafley, Chairman of the Board, President and CEO, Procter & Gamble. 2004 annual report, pp7-8.
