With global expansion and additional product lines in mind, what is NOT a convincing reason for considering a functional structure in which sales and marketing is country and product specific, but everything else is centralised globally?

(B) This is the most efficient solution

(C) This is the most responsive solution

(D) This enhances your ability to coordinate centrally

Explanation

A functional structure in which sales and marketing is country and product specific, but everything else is centralised globally is not convincing because it is the most responsive solution. It is a responsive solution because the organisation is aware of its potential and it is trying to accept and adapt to the changes in the industry by expanding globally with additional product lines.
