A Model for Designing Target-adaptive Organizations


  • Kristiyan Hadjiev


The methodological tools in the process of designing highly effective and competitive organizations are studied. Based on this, there are given a few successive actions of crucial importance: defining the mission of the organization with respect to the requirements of the specific business environment; planning of particular objectives on the basis of adapting to the specific business environment and flexible scheduling; balancing organizational resources with the aim to achieve perfection, promote and sustain organizational perfection in time; redefining the mission of the organization whenever the conditions in the external environment change. The degree of adequacy and applicability of the proposed model for designing target-adaptive organizations is discussed.
