Importancy of understanding your companies (changing) structure and your place
I'm looking for some scientific research about the importancy of understanding your companies structure (business units, departments, teams, squads, missions, etc) and your place in it. So understanding where you are in the company and how your surroundings look like.
Thanks for every suggestion.
We first visited Haier headquarters in Qingdao, China in 2017. We enjoyed an extended conversation with CEO Zhang Ruimin. He told us "there is no such thing as a successful company. There are only companies that move with the times". Those words intrigued me. In hindsight, I never truly understood them. Now I think I do. Let me explain.
