Omschrijving “Structure follows Strategy” is a concept proposed by Alfred DuPont Chandler, a former professor of business history of Harvard Business School. It implicates that the company’s organization should be in line with its strategy. In this course we will discuss the implications of how a chosen strategy should impact the company’s organization and what this means for the leadership within the company, including the participant’s own leadership.
