A professional business educator, Jeffery D Whippo explains that in order to create a market-responsive organization, management can use a three-phase process:

1 Determine corporate strategic boundaries

2 Balance the demands of scale and market responsiveness

3 Organize for strategic effectiveness.

Jeffery D Whippo says that a company must determine Corporate Strategic Boundaries. How successfully a corporation aligns its structure with its strategic objectives depends on its success in making several key decisions: determining the stage of the value-added process at which it will compete, identifying those activities in which it has a competitive edge, selecting the functions it should execute internally, and developing a plan of action for integrating those functions most productively. Whippo says that these decisions determine how resources should be allocated and how external and internal boundaries should be drawn.

According to Jeff Whippo, these decisions define the company's business—its products, services, customers, and markets—and determine both long- and short- term strategic potential. How well the company exploits its assets and the degree to which each division's performance supports strategic objectives determine how close it will come to achieving that potential.
