Be Bold and Reorganize Differently

Whether you are reading the summary of Deloitte’s Global Human Capital Trends report that emphasizes the advantages of the Team of Teams concept or you are reading Jeff Bezo’s latest annual shareholder letter that highlights the need for Amazon to retain its high-velocity decision making, one thing is clear, companies must rethink their existing organizational strategy.

Most businesses are not built on the successes of their business functions (e.g., marketing, IS, purchasing, legal, HR, etc…), but they are built on their successful implementation and execution of unique business processes. So why do so many companies today still organize by function? It’s the business processes (and in some cases the technology) that are likely setting you apart from other companies and providing a competitive advantage!
