ABSTRACT
The article focuses on McGraw-Hill Cos. Inc. that completed its business-wide reorganization. Under the new structure, the company is no longer divided along product lines and trade book publishing is spread throughout its professional group instead of being its own division. McGraw-Hill Professional publishes 1,000 titles per year, the bulk of which are textbooks and education titles. BPR estimates the company will publish 175 trade books in 2005. The company also reported a 7.4% increase in 2004 revenues to $5.3 billion, with sales from its higher education, professional and international group, which includes trade books, growing 4% to reach $1.1 billion.
