Abstract

Asks what happens to company headquarters when an organisation decides to downsize its operations. Examines new organisational imperatives and the reasons for restructuring and streamlining. Presents the ways that headquarters buildings have responded to the changing business environment. Offers some examples of shrinking headquarters in the United Kingdom. Suggests that it has been possible for some companies to develop, use and manage shrinking headquarters creatively.
