Almost always, the announcement of a restructuring initiative occasions cynicism and fear among employees – with good reason. Too often, these programs backfire and leave the organization weaker than before. Even apparently successful cost-cutting programs can cause turmoil and damage employee morale. Nevertheless, a well-managed restructuring initiative offers opportunities to create a more agile, more competitive organization. Vinay Couto, Deniz Caglar and John Plansky, experts in strategic cost transformation, outline the elements of a well-led program. getAbstract recommends this article to all leaders and managers of organizations planning cost-cutting programs.
