Organizations increasingly split off parts and start cooperating with those parts, for instance in Shared Service Centers or by using in- or outsourcing. However, what is the right spot and way for finding the organization split?
Martin Op 't Land (Capgemini) offers a long-awaited answer to this question, based on both literature and field research. His research resulted in a practical instrument to support organization splitting, allying and post-merger integration - an instrument that is fast, effective and relatively cheap. This booklet is a management summary of the PhD thesis Applying Architecture and Ontology to the Splitting and Allying of Enterprises by Martin Op 't Land, Delft University of Technology, 2008.
