Structure versus strategy in businesses.

At N4 partners, Allan and his partners do structure and strategy together, allowing them to be relatively fluid in their approach. It’s not about putting people in boxes, but being part of a team putting the right processes and systems. Bringing on the right culture is essential.

Core principles of successful organisations

The pillars of success are the structure, process system, business model and right people. You need to be bringing in young people with different experiences and backgrounds to take learnings from them. Be able to bring the right team together. Have a plan based on different cultures and locations. It will help the business grow.
