Open question:"what are the criteria you use when mapping an initial structure?" do you alway go the "automatic way"? or do you start from role discoveries and subsequent groupings ?
I find that the first approach produces something that is more "acceptable" (less change impact, less trauma for ex-managers, if converted to LeadLinks) but can be a mess to evolve by early stage practitioners (especially when the org is functional vs product/service/output oriented). The second one is more evolutionary friendly but it may raise the initial discomfort (new practice + new structure)
What are your thoughts? How do you deal with these trade-offs?
