Align operational needs with business strategies.
An organization’s business strategy includes leadership theories and practices, as well as organization structure. One of management’s responsibilities is to ensure their team’s work aligns to the organization’s business strategies.

What other structures discussed in the chapter might allow the organization to operate more effectively? For example, would the move to a product team structure lead to greater efficiency or effectiveness? Why or why not?
