organization chart describe changes to the leadership and organization of LADOT. These are effective Monday, February 27, 2012. Preface As you are aware, at the request of Mayor Villaraigosa, the Controller retained KH Consulting Group to conduct a management review of the department. Part of their work included completing an organizational analysis of LADOT and making recommendations on revisions to our organizational structure to improve the performance of the department. The changes detailed below reflect my decision on how best to structure LADOT to effectively run the department, deliver the priorities of the Mayor and City Council, and – ultimately – to serve the public. I look forward to building on our success over the past nine months as LADOT starts a new chapter as a leading city department that touches the lives of every Angeleno on a daily basis. Organization Structure The new structure consists of six major operating groups and three special offices, all reporting directly to the general manager. Organizational units under groups are referred to as “divisions”. See below for an overview of the new organizational structure and attached for more details. Note that some organizational units have been re-named or updated slightly.
