  Article Summary  
Organizational change strategies such as rightsizing and restructuring are designed to transform companies into more efficient, more agile and more customer-driven organizations.

These processes have both short-term and long-term consequences, and this article looks at critical success factors that drive positive outcomes. Reviewed are areas like focusing on core competencies, labor costs, operational efficiencies and cost-benefit analysis.

Executives and managers must be prepared to adjust, lead and motivate in ways that help employees, customers and communities join in and support the new path.
