To prepare for this discussion, review the following article:
Kotter, J. P. (2012). Accelerate! Harvard Business Review, 90(11), 43–58.
Today’s business organizations operate in a fast-changing, sometimes volatile business environment and must be able to change and adapt quickly. Rigid, finite organizational structures are outdated and cannot compete. Today, the hierarchy of an organization can make or break the economic progress of an organization. Using the principles outlined in the “Accelerate!” article, discuss how organizational structure can be used to help create a nimble, adaptable organization. Support your ideas with an example from a business; if possible, use a business in which you have worked.
A well-developed post, one that would be considered distinguished, is usually 250–350 words, on topic, provides examples, and relates what you’re saying to the course content.
Post your initial discussion response by Thursday to allow time for your peers to respond.
