Discussion: Organizational Change

As the lead consultant for Workplace Solutions Consulting, you are the one to deliver the recommendations for organizational change to the management of Informational Systems. Some of the ideas involve centralizing some duplicated administration functions in regional locations and others involve de-centralizing product departments to break down silo walls across locations. The bottom line: although all of these changes are for the better for organization, they will be quite disruptive to the personnel at IS.
