Recently your company merged with a much larger Boston Accounting Firm to improve efficiencies, increase revenues, cut costs and adopt best practice in the industry. After the merger, you find yourself on a team of four other individuals that you have never met. Each individual is from a different department: Auditing, Tax, Corporate Governance, Legal and Insurance. The purpose of your team is to downsize your department in terms of employees.
Create a 10-slide restructuring and downsizing plan presentation with speaker notes that can be used in each department.
Answer the following questions in your plan:
- Why is the change needed?
- What will change?
- Who will be affected?

- What tactics will be used to achieve a successful restructuring/downsizing transition? What tactics will be avoided?
- What are the benefits of the planned changes?
