Getting to this state takes specific skills and knowledge, especially as the redesign of an enterprise must be carried out while making sure that the day-to-day operations do not suffer. Using many real company examples, this guide looks at methods of thinking clearly about the reasons for wanting to change - and then working out the best ways of getting from A to B successfully. In doing so it stresses that organisation design work is a fundamental process and not just a repair job."--Jacket." ;
