For decades, theorists have urged companies to adopt alternative structures – often pointing to networked designs. But few organizations have embraced such structures. According to the authors of this 2008 white paper – a PowerPoint presentation from the Beyond Budgeting Transformation Network – they’ve lacked a full account of the principles behind networked structures and a road map for implementation. This presentation makes the case for cell networked structures, outlining their benefits and essential elements. It provides only an introduction; executives will have to look elsewhere for detailed information about principles and implementation.
