Important as this phase is, you must be aware of its place in planning. There's a reason. Strategy drives structure, not the other way around. There is no costlier mistake in business than forming an organization before strategic intent and objectives have been established. Organizations form a core competence to fulfill a specific mission. Only then does it make sense to determine where you want to go, and what best combination of capital, human and physical resources is needed to get there. SMS consultants are uniquely equipped to assist you in designing an organization that can meet your company’s mission objectives.
