Getting the organization right is increasingly recognized as the key to business success, for both line executives and HR leaders. Designing the organization, however, means a lot more than just creating or fine-tuning the structure. These books provide concepts and step-by-step guidance on the many facets of effective organization design: the vertical and horizontal structure, processes and relationships, policies, practices and cultural attributes — all aligned with the overall strategy.
