Juniper Networks

How would you reorganize and restructure an organization that the company wanted to take in a completely new direction?

2 Answers

Basically stated I would need a complete review of the organization structure, P&L, financials, the board's goals and timeline, interviews with key players and key customers. Would take the first 90 days for discovery and implementation planning, goal setting, hiring lieutenants, and would then take the next 6 months in implementation, with bi-monthly updates for the CEO and Board, as necessary. Less

I would gain a clear understanding of the corporate goals. Understand the team members and each of their strengths. Create an initial 90 day retention plan and determine if any of the exiting team have a place within that plan based on their skills - not their current role. Be honest, direct and specific in delivering all messaging to the team and to the board. Set clear expectations for each team member and each superior as to expectations and deliverables. Ensure a proper timeline aligns with the goals. EXECUTE! Less
