The Future of Organization Design
The type of organization design that I practice is strategic organization design. It has roots in Chandler's (1962) work which states, "Structure follows strategy." It applies to organizing at the enterprise, business unit, region, or functional levels. It is a top-down design methodology. The alternative is a bottom-up design approach such as the socio-technical systems approach. Bottom-up design methodologies build and design an organization around the technology being utilized and are most applicable at lower levels of the organization.
