Organization Design by Nicolay Worren (2012)

The book is aimed at master-level students and professionals who want an in-depth understanding of how to deal with organizational design challenges facing large and complex firms. Key topics include:

  • Why organizations are becoming more complex
  • What managers can do to manage or reduce complexity
  • How to design multidimensional structures
  • How to improve sub-unit interfaces
  • Managing the organisation design process

“…The message that organization design is a part of every managers’ job, is a major determinant of effectiveness, but requires considerable skill, comes through load and clear from this book. With its use of challenges, key questions and proposed approaches the book explains complex concepts and provides a good blend academic insight and practical relevance”. – Paul R. Sparrow, Director, Centre for Performance-led HR, Lancaster University Management School

“This clearly written book offers a contemporary and thoughtful presentation of the architectural options involved in organisational design. It candidly acknowledges the neglect of organisational design in much research (…). It emphasizes that the topic of organisational design must include processes of design (…) Overall, Nicolay Worren persuasively makes the argument that organizational design deserves to be a core topic in the modern business school.” – Lex Donaldson, Professor of Management in Organisational Design, Australian School of Business, University of New South Wales
