Case Study: Brinkerhoff International Inc.
Cost of reengineering and restructuring may too much for the company to bear at its current stage.
Course of Action: Reengineering and Restructuring
After careful study, EDGE believes that reengineering and restructuring Brinkerhoff will increase productivity, efficiency, and job satisfaction by significant percentages. Although we place a crucial focus on reengineering the organization, the inclusion of various other solutions noted throughout this analysis are essential. After the initial redefining of organizational strategy and roles, the remaining actions will be addressed respectively: (1) create a modified mechanistic model, (2) train management to have greater leadership skills, (3) motivate the employees to increase productivity, job enrichment, and satisfaction, (4) enhance communication between management and employees, and (5) create a lasting ethical, hard-working, respectful culture. Potential risks associated with these changes include resistance from employees, a brief transition period characterized by minimal productivity, and significant cost increases. To reduce setbacks, we stress that organization wide changes must be considered first and foremost. Adequate training and monthly meetings will serve as grounds for communicating with the employees so they are included in organizational decision making.
