Restructuring in Greiner Phase 6
William Eastman, Member
I would start with the following question: "What was their originating model for structuring: functional or process?
If an organization has structured functionally, restructuring in phase 6 might be a correct solution because building alliances could add too much complexity to the organization - alliances touch too many parts of the company for adequate coordination.
If structured around core processes, it would be additive because alliances are a core process.
