Commerzbank Kicks Off `Fundamental' Overhaul at its Headquarters

Commerzbank AG has embarked on what it calls a “fundamental reorganization” of its headquarters in an effort to speed up decision-making and innovation, according to an internal memo obtained by Bloomberg. The bank plans to replace traditional project teams with more flexible units called “clusters” where employees from different divisions work together on a product or service, according to internal communications obtained by Bloomberg. Product and service delivery will be divided into 15 “key areas” that will have a total of 53 clusters with as many as 150 employees each.
