Gary Katzenstein: Organizational Structure & Business Alignment

Achieving alignment between business structure and strategy is a formidable challenge given constantly changing business environments. How to successfully realign your business by recognizing changes in the environment – and within the organization – and identifying performance gaps and organizational challenges is the focal point of Gary Katzenstein’s Organizational Structure & Business Alignment session at UC Berkeley’s Intensive Workshop for Aspiring Chief Human Resources Officer in San Francisco (May 7 – 9, 2019).

The framework presented by Gary Katzenstein helps people see the relationships among key organizational elements—the forest and the trees—so that the organization can achieve their strategies, function smoothly with minimal conflict and dysfunction, and get the best out of their human resources. Workshop participants will apply this framework to their own situations using case studies and participant exercises.

“In my work, I focus on leadership and innovation fundamentals, helping leaders cut through the complexity and ambiguities of organizational life to see the critical human side of organizations. Getting this human foundation right helps an organization solve problems and achieve their strategies by developing and implementing long-lasting solutions.”
