The Three Kinds of Reorgs

1 minute read

Reshuffling the deck is inevitable form time to time in any big company as projects and strategies shift – Reorg time!

I’ve so far identified three kinds. Let me describe them with an analogy:

Picture yourself on a patch of land in the middle of nowadays Germany in the early 1800s …

  1. … you sit there, watching you potatoes grow and in the distance you see a big dust cloud with people and horses and wagons and weapons moving from West to East. Two months later, someone knocks on your door and says – in French – “I want your taxes!”
  2. … you sit there, watching your potatoes grow and a big dust cloud with people and horses and wagons and weapons moving from West to East moves right over your field – and the potatoes are gone.
  3. … you sit there, watching your potatoes grow and a big dust cloud a big dust cloud with people and horses and wagons and weapons approaches from the West – and a similar looking one from the East (!!!) and you end up dead.
