Strayer Transplant Center is part of the SEI Healthcare System. It is a for-profit organization. All of the procedures are performed at the system’s flagship hospital. The organization currently performs more than 750 procedures a year. The center generates over 80 million in revenue each year. However, we have seen a slight decline over the last few years.
The current organizational structure is considered to be functional. Senior management has put forth a recommendation to change the structure to another type to stop the loss of revenue. The options being considered are: divisional, matrix, and flatarchy. You are a consultant that has been brought in to evaluate these options. You will prepare a memorandum that discusses the each option and includes your recommendation. In your memorandum, list the type of structure (include the current one) with a brief definition. Identify the pros and cons of each one. Then make a recommendation on which option the organization change to if any. Also, address how this change in structure would impact the strategic planning activities of the organization.
