All companies clearing the transition from private to public confront a high degree of risk. A solid organizational structure, firm transitional leadership, and effective communication play a predominant role in the changeover.

(Alexander p. 1). Additionally, Genetech relied on its functional structure to trim back previous rambling research to focus on more attractive projects with commercial potential. [...]


[...] Its decision to go public factored on a desire for increased growth rate--as well as to fund further research and development of anti-cancer drugs, drugs for the protection of normal tissue from radiation exposure, and other new drugs. The firm's protection in the stock market highly depended on a solid organizational structure and transformational leadership: functional structure, competency perspective and strong development of contingency leadership theories.
