According to Darwin’s Origin of Species, it is not the most intellectual of the species that survives; it is not the strongest that survives; but the species that survives is the one that is best able to adapt and adjust to the changing environment in which it finds itself.
What Darwin wrote in 1826, for species, holds true for organizations as well and in this high paced world even more so. As we all know the rate of change will continue to increase, increasing the necessity for organizations to adapt to an ever changing environment. BLW supports organizations and the people that work in them to use their strengths to adapt and grow.

The main service rendered by BLW is to support organizations in ensuring a lasting fit between their structure and their strategy. The strategy reflects the required choices made by management to grow and stay competitive. BLW analyzes the existing structure and determines how it fits with the strategy. How well it supports the realization of the objectives. Based on the analysis of the current organization and the strategy, design criteria are formulated which guide the design process towards an organization that best fits the strategy.
