Why is one multinational consumer goods company organized by category, while another organizes by region? Why is one insurance company deep into an agile transformation while another is experimenting with it only at the edges of its business? For everyRead more
Alija/Getty Images Congrats, you got the job! Now you have to decide whether or not to take it.
