Good organizational design provides incentives for value generation and determines an efficient power distribution in organizations. This book investigates both theoretically and practically how organizations can be designed for efficiency. The different building blocks of organizational design--the strategy, the structure, the boundaries, and the governance of organizations--are first analyzed for any interdependencies within or between them and then synthesised to a consistent system. Three case studies in the second part of the book illustrate the application of the theory of organizational design.
MARCO WEISS is a research fellow at the Wilhelm Merton-Chair at the University of Frankfurt. He has published several articles about organizational design in various firms and industries. In his counsulting capacity he has worked for several firms in the financial services industry.
