This is the third podcast for the power sector corporate strategy study we will soon release as part of our Executive Program.
The organizational structure of a company must enable / support / empower its corporate strategy. In other words, structure must follow the strategy. In this podcast we explain how the initial corporate strategy recommendations are not enough to guide the organizational design team.
Based on the likely power sector outages and types of problems, the organizational design can take one of two general styles: highly agile and responsive OR unresponsive but designed to deliver on significant, preplanned, construction projects.
Making this decision is not easy and has enormous implications for the client. It is a decision that must be made. If we say the client will not respond to daily outages we are basically saying daily outages are not an issue and the general population must live through the outages, and suffer. How do we make such a decision?
