Amy Kates and Jay Galbraith’s new book focuses on special applications in organization design including designing around the customer, coordinating across geographic borders, designing a successful matrix, designing for innovation, configuring the corporate center, and solving the dilemmas of centralization and decentralization.

“Starting several decades ago, Jay Galbraith wrote a series of books that essentially defined the field of modern organization design. Now, with deceptive simplicity, compelling logic, and immense practicality, he and Amy Kates have summarized in a single place what every manager needs to know about this vitally important subject.”
