    Frequent re-orgs cause loss of institutional knowledge
    Benefits are CHEAP

    Advice to Management

    There is too much emphasis on increasing the number of direct reports per manager. Allow high performers to develop management skills on a smaller scale before requiring that they jump to having 10 direct reports. This will require organization design based on functionality rather than purely HR metrics.
