Factors to Consider in Organization Design
Considerations of the external environment—including uncertainty, competition, and resources—are key in determining organizational design.
Dependent upon the size and operational scale of a company, identifying the ideal structure is critical to achieving efficiency and synergy.
Technology impacts organizational design, such as by enabling virtual structures or a more analytical view to aspects of structure.
The life cycle of an organization, industry, and/or product can be an important factor in organizational design.
