"For every problem, no matter how complex, no matter how difficult the situation, there is always a solution that is simple, straightforward, quick, -- and wrong."
Richard Branton

Organizational Configuration is how to best map the available resources to the necessary work. However, in developing an organizational structure, it is not enough to merely align the resources to the work to be done. You must create an environment where people will likely be successful. Socio-political analysis allows us to look at the “people” factors that impact success.

Socio-political factors that can be examined include culture, attitudes, values, reward systems, people interaction, and politics. For projects that require change to an organization, failure to address any of these factors may push people to revert to the “old way” of doing things.
