Role of the Center


No other organizational phenomenon is as intrinsically tied to the rise of the modern multibusiness corporation as the role of the corporate center. As a result of changing internal and external forces, corporate leaders now face a number of new questions:

  • What are the megatrends affecting our business, and how do we adjust the role and accountabilities of our corporate center accordingly?
  • How do we determine the optimal size of our corporate headquarters?
  • How do we most efficiently add value to business units (through vertical synergies) with minimal cost?
  • On an increasingly global playing field, how do we strike a balance between central coordination, local responsiveness, and the entrepreneurial autonomy of our businesses?
