Every time the strategy changes, including when there’s a shift to a new stage of the execution lifecycle, the organization needs to re-evaluate and change to the structure to support the current strategy. Design must both support the current business strategy and allow the organization to adapt to changing market conditions and customer needs over time. People are what bring strategic initiatives to life. If the initiative does not take into account a workforce plan demonstrating volume, types of employees, and the attributes of each employee necessary to bring the plan to fruition, it will lose momentum, cost more than expected, and possibly fail to achieve the goal.
