Strategic Planning and Organizational Restructuring

The CEO has asked for your opinion on how to best restructure the firm – focusing on the HR function. Recommend an organizational structure that will provide for the growth of the firm. Explain how organizational structure affects project management and the customers. Is an organizational restructuring such as this a good candidate for a project?
