CTcon: Organisational structure

Or­ga­ni­sa­tio­nal struc­ture


The organisational structure of groups, their subsidiary companies and departments is never static. Events that typically trigger structural changes include:

  • Rising cost pressures,
  • Mergers and acquisitions,
  • The appointment of new managers,
  • Permanent overloading of some units and
  • Dissatisfaction on the part of internal or external customers.


Our experience has shown that successful organisational redesign depends on being able to balance the following interests, some of which contradict each other:

  • The quality and efficiency of task execution: how does one ensure that the unit in question produces high-quality work efficiently?
  • Qualifications: are the required qualifications available?
  • Development plans for staff members: which individual staff development plans should be taken into consideration?
