Business operations find it hard to implement change because of conservative forces integrated into the organization:
  • Different aspects of solution development, manufacturing, sales and support require conflicting approaches
    • Typically the organizational coalition must mask these conflicts by functionalizing the different aspects
  • Functional organizations:
    • Allow replication of structures and application of business models and infrastructure across the operations.  This supports alignment of the overall network. 
    • Enable recombination operations, through which the enterprise can look for equivalent situations across its businesses and then select high achievers, from this pool of functional equivalents to fill a key or troubled role
    • Hierarchies enable silos
