Creating Leadership Magic
Source: Leader to Leader Institute
Structure is as important to an organization as it is to a building. You might hire the best possible people, inspire them, and pay them every cent they're worth, but if you don't give them the right framework in which to operate, they can't perform at their best. Good organizational architecture not only keeps costs in line and maximizes efficiency, it also streamlines the decision-making process, enhances employee and customer satisfaction, and facilitates creativity and innovation at all levels. That's why great leaders evaluate their structure on an ongoing basis.
