Green Enterprise and Sustainability towards Business Federation in Professional Service Firms with respect to Globalization
We present the business federation as a new organizational form. We illustrate how professional service firms can achieve economic growth by operating locally within an international network. Within the business federation, local offices gain access to resources through an extreme form of delegation. The article illustrates how the business federation functions using five organizational design parameters. In order to achieve scale effects, information technology is essential. Information technology can be seen in relation to political struggles amongst professional service firms. In order to achieve an entrepreneurial spirit within professional service firms, we argue that a great degree of autonomy is required. We are of the opinion that only through radical change is it possible for professional service firms to focus on how innovation can be used as a weapon in a more complex and turbulent market place.
