The following is the first of a two-part series in which we will share with you six case studies that demonstrate how poor business results were overcome with the help of good organization design. In each case study, we will share:
Much has been written about why organizations fail to deliver their strategies. We hear that those strategic plans are not achievable for a variety of reasons, and the reasons often lead us to a root cause of poor organization design. In this case study, we explore how the organization structure of a multinational prevented the execution of a new strategy, and how a new structure supported the delivery of that strategy fostering significant bottom line performance improvements.

A properly structured and well-managed “innovative” organization encourages, supports, and enables innovation at every level. Distinct levels of work contribute to innovation differently. Front-line roles contribute to innovation in ways that affect the quality and speed of service delivery versus senior leadership roles that drive the innovation of new products, services, markets and even business models. In this case study, we explore how a well-designed structure enabled a global organization to achieve innovative growth and value creation.

3. Case Study: Structuring to drive sustainable engagement
We often get asked why engagement projects do not have a higher sustainable impact on employee engagement levels and business outcomes. The benefits of an engaged workforce are clear: increased productivity, decreased turnover, and improved business results.
Two conditions are commonly expressed by highly engaged employees across industries.
