Restructuring – A Pain in the Brain

Combine the fast past of business today with our current economic climate and you have plenty of businesses experiencing “restructuring.”

Restructuring, also known as “organizational change,” cannot happen in a vacuum. It’s more than just drawing lines differently on the organizational chart. Studies show that for organizational change to be effective, it needs a disciplined approach and continual effort, starting at the highest levels of an organization.

In any restructuring effort, those at the top need to communicate the vision while at the same time communicate the benefits of the new vision so that the organization remains committed to the change.

This is where communication flow is important up and down the chain of command. Most people don’t like change. It’s an unknown. What’s more, most folks aren’t invested in making any changes unless they clearly see how it benefits them. No benefits = no need to change.

Restructuring is never easy, but it’s easier if those at the top get input and from all levels, then address those issues in the change plan. And by all means, keep the communication flowing.
