This week I have been confronted by the fact that my corporation is moving from an engineering centric organization to a marketing centric organization. This is somewhat troubling as I am an engineer. However the greater concern is whether or not the change will be implemented effectively. It seems that the executive team is using a top down approach, which I agree with. However, the executive team does not seem to have the full support of the first and second level managers, and this could jeopardize the transition. A better approach would have been to have an offsite leadership development meeting to get buy in from the entire management team prior to making changes.
