Discussion: Strategic Planning and Organizational Restructuring
- Imagine you are the HR director of a growing international staffing organization that services both North America and South America. The CEO has come to realize that the HR group, which is currently decentralized, is in need of restructuring to account for the expected increase in employees. The CEO has asked for your opinion on how to best restructure the firm. Based upon your readings, recommend an organizational structure (e.g., functional, matrix, or projectized) that will provide growth for the firm. Also, assess the influence that this project will have on the employees (who are located throughout the Americas) that are serviced by the HR group.
