Is our organisation structure redundant?

Our organisational structures will soon be redundant before they are published, and we need to integrate routine reviews of our structure (and small scale redundancy exercises) with our normal business review processes.   If this is not to make everyone unrealistically stressed, we need to combine ongoing skill and knowledge development so that individuals who are displaced by this process can easily be reassigned to growing parts of the organisation.

It should be the old structures that are redundant – not the people.
