Like the foundation of a house, the structure of your organization is the cornerstone on which every function is based. Does a solid, well-aligned structure in itself guarantee success in all areas? Absolutely not. But can you achieve your goals without it? Absolutely not.

What they fail to recognize is the array of internal and external forces that can chip away at your structure’s effectiveness, eventually rendering it obsolete.
