Donald's presentation was delightfully entertaining, engaging, and motivating. . . the evening was filled with laughter and enjoyment. As a direct result of a very satisfied audience, four members of the audience stepped up to volunteer their time and skills to the Dallas Section ASQ. Thank you, Donald!

Organizational Re-design

A solid organizational structure drives an excellent strategic plan. Many organizations do not match their strategy with the structure but rather allow the structure to determine strategy. Other organizations are overly complex or cumbersome.

The best structure is a simple one—flat and non-hierarchical. Some of the best structures also include cross-functional teams and employee empowerment through front-line decision-making. The highest level of structure includes a collaboration network of an organization with its customers, suppliers, and partners. This level requires a supply chain management approach.


  • Aligns strategy with structure for greater efficiency
  • Reduces costs in money, time, and frustration
  • Moves everyone together in the same direction
  • Improves employee morale
  • Creates employee empowerment
  • Simplifies and improves interactions between customers and employees


Our approach to Simplified Structure focuses on integrating and aligning strategy with structure. If you do not have a solid strategy, then it is better to start with a strategy and then address the re-design of structure. Our approach is as follows:

  • Review current Strategic Plan for organization
  • Choose an appropriate structural model for the organization
  • Align the strategy with the structure based on function, product or service, market, geography, or process
  • Review capabilities of employees and place within structure accordingly
  • Link the organization’s processes to the structure to facilitate coordination
  • Integrate processes as necessary to improve work flow and efficiency
  • Create cross-functional or work teams as necessary
  • Communicate changes to entire organization
