Reviews

'The step-by-step approach and structure enable a truly holistic analysis of the organizational architecture in a realistic time frame. This is a rare example of how to turn extremely complex business challenges into tangible actions by adding the right structure and perspective. De-scoping relevant organizational variables to reduce complexity can now be a thing of the past.' Jesper Sorensen, Organisation Design Manager, Shell Downstream
'This third edition ties organization design and change together tightly to illustrate how to plan and execute change based on a holistic organizational diagnosis. Burton et al.'s approach is firmly based on research and my MBA students quickly appreciate how organizational alignment contributes towards higher performance by using the 2x2 tables and assessing fits and misfits. There is no other organization design book that balances current organization design research with this level of clear applications.' Sylvia J. Flatt, San Francisco State University
'Organizational Design is rich with models and frameworks to deploy against a multitude of organizational needs. The authors recognize that every organization structure represents trade-offs in agility, efficiency, and simplicity. By addressing organization through the lens of the environment and strategy, the authors provide a process for optimizing an organization within the practical constraints each organization inevitably faces. This is a book that goes beyond narrow prescriptions and provides a robust process for designing the ecosystem that makes up highly effective organizations. It is a tour de force of organization design writ large.' Ron Nicol, Senior Partner and Managing Director, The Boston Consulting Group
