The environment of organizations (economic, technological, political, legal, sociocultural contexts, etc.) is currently characterized by constant and profound changes, with impacts on their lives, businesses and strategies, ultimately influencing their structures. Depending on the sector and the magnitude of such changes, adjustments in terms of their organizational structure to facilitate and boost the implementation of new strategies may or may not be justified.

With regard to Banco de Cabo Verde, the last adjustment to its organizational structure took place in 2015. After this adjustment, the Executive Board approved a new Strategic Plan covering the 2016-2019 period. It aims to address several challenges and opportunities that shape the Bank's external environment, alongside its internal environment. To that end, the aforementioned Plan contains a set of Strategic Objectives and the ways and means to achieve them. 

It is worth mentioning that, establishing strategies is as important as creating organizational conditions for their successful implementation. It is here that the organization structure is called upon to play an important role, insofar as it is an essential instrument for developing and implementing plans and strategies.
