Abstract

In recent years, the pace of change and the complexity of the business environment have increased rapidly. And this has often left operational structures outdated, no longer suitable for the new challenges. Existing organisations are often fragmented, their structures too hierarchical. This gets in the way of quick decision making, and makes interdisciplinary teamwork difficult. In situations like these, using established procedures to manage projects is rarely a recipe for success. We need new organisational forms and structures in order to facilitate more efficient management and communication, new forms and structures that are suitable for the challenges of modern business life.
