Lawler, Edward E.; Worley, Christopher
January 2009
People Management;1/29/2009, Vol. 15 Issue 3, p28
The authors look at the effectiveness of built-to-change principles in dealing with the impact of the credit crunch on business organizations. They believe the only way for organisations to change rapidly enough is to design them so that they can adjust their strategic intents, structures and human capital deployments as a matter of routine. They note that the first of these principles touches on how organisations develop strategies for dealing with the future.
