Before you begin any organization redesign process, be mindful of this underpinning principle .... When redesigning an organization if you make a change in one area it has an impact on other areas.
Simple analogy: if you put mag wheels on a car and do nothing to adjust the steering, braking and suspension of the car it will not perform to it's optimum.
This is why the following three principles must be understood by anyone who is about to undertake any type of organization redesign.
The entire system has an effect on each element within the system
Every element in the system has an effect on the entire system, and on each other
No matter what you do, the two points above will always hold true
