There are several types or levels of change that can occur in any organisation and each one demands a high level of commitment from managers to be successful, whether the change is relatively minor or one that involves a whole service.

The aim of a service restructure is to achieve service improvements whilst delivering identified efficiencies.

To ensure a restructure process achieves these outcomes, it is essential that consideration is given at the outset as to why there is a need for a restructure and what the outcomes will be.

It is important that any service redesign or restructure is well planned and adequately resourced.
