    If there are two alternative ways to perform a task, why not choose the one that generates less waste? In Efficient Organization, Mikko Ketokivi and Joe Mahoney take a practical and decision-oriented approach to organization design and governance. They first examine contracting and relationships within and across organizations in addition to special topics such as non-profits, public organizations, and stakeholder analysis. They then identify and discuss the main organization design and governance decisions and challenges relevant at the founding of the organization, during its expansion, and at maturity.

    Ketokivi and Mahoney maintain that the focus of efficient governance is on establishing the credibility of the organization in the eyes of its most important stakeholders. Establishing and maintaining credibility sustains the viability of the organization. Highlighting the importance of securing cooperation across individuals and organizations for mutual value creation, this book provides tools that decision-makers can use in their own organizations.

    Mikko Ketokivi is a Professor of Operations Management and Organization Design at IE Business School. Joe Mahoney is the Caterpillar Chair of Business Gies College of Business at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
