Fractal Company Structures Mastering New Challenges, Alphagalileo
Excerpts: Companies are markedly more efficient when they couple the fundamental principles of the fractal factory - adaptability, process-orientation and decentralisation - with innovative concepts such as customer-oriented service ranges, networks or e-business. The analysis shows more than 20 percent higher productivity for such companies. This productivity edge cannot be explained by structural differences and holds for companies of varying sizes as well as for companies with products of varying degrees of complexity. In general it can be said that the more complex the products manufactured, the more extensive the exploitation of the possibilities of fractal structures, network formation and value-added creation is.
