Organizing for Value

When large companies are organized in the traditional division structure, strategic decisions too often fall to managers under pressure to meet budgetary demands. Success in one unit masks underperformance in others, while ventures that promise strong future growth go underfunded because they don’t contribute to short-term bottom-line numbers.

One way to shake things up is to review the strategy and performance-management processes and to make decisions at the more granular level of value cells. By emphasizing these value cells rather than aggregated bottom-line division numbers, this approach sheds light on which activities should be the target of additional investment—and which should be divested entirely.
