The structure of an organization can affect its performance. There is a close linkage between structure and other facets of an organization such as its control system, career and reward system, information systems, etc. The case shows the role that structure plays in shaping the identity of organizational members and the political alignments within the firm. The case gives students a chance to put themselves in the shoes of a young MBA working in a start-up setting and allows them to grapple with what they would do differently; particularly if they would also have such substantial structural changes as a means of intervention to influence the firms’ performance.
Please perform an analysis of this case. The content should demonstrate learning from the text, classroom or other resources. Feel free to include and cite theories, concepts and models from the text, articles company comparisons. The goal of the assignment is not to just restate the case, but perform an analysis of the structures Ghosh tried.
- Evaluate the importance of each of the structural changes he implemented.
- How important were they?
- What problems did each new structure address? What problems in turn did each structure create?
- What are your recommendations for addressing the challenges that Appex is facing by the end of the case.
The materials should be read prior to class and discussed by your group. During class the group will synthesize their findings. At this point the group should be prepared to do an in class mini presentation of the case followed by a Q & A from the other groups.
