ABSTRACT
The article discusses transformation in organizations. In order to achieve high performance, organizations must be flexible, flat, highly productive and able to quickly transform themselves to meet unexpected conflict. The cost structure models are no longer viable which implies that businesses must go beyond downsizing and cost cutting. Certain changes in the levels of management, specific functions and services are needed to make an impact on the market.
