Provider Transformation Manual Module 6: Reorganizing Staff for Transformative Change
Agencies are accustomed to organizing personnel and operations in a manner that supports services that they have traditionally provided. They may sometimes reorganize to accommodate the addition of new services or the expansion of current services, but they rarely step back to completely rethink their structure, and the staff positions within it, to address a new focus. When an agency is transforming to support competitive integrated employment, they must take this important step and organize services and supports around people. It is a time when all positions should be reconsidered.
