20 C LASSIFICATION OF O RGANIZATION 1. Formal organization 2. In-formal Organization

21 F ORMAL O RGANIZATION It is an organizational structure which clearly defines the duties, responsibilities, authority, and relationship as prescribed by the top management. It represents the classification of activities within the enterprise, indicate who reports to whom and explains the vertical flow of communications which connects the chief executive to the ordinary workers.

22 I NFORMAL ORGANIZATION It is an organizational structure which establish the relationship on the basis of the likes and dislikes of officers without considering the rules, regulations and procedures. The friendship,mutual understanding and confidence are some of the reasons for exiting informal organization.

23 T YPES OF ORGANIZATION Line Organization Staff Organization Line and Staff Organization

24 L INE O RGANIZATION This is the simplest and oldest form of organization, since it utilizes the superior- subordinate relationship generally prevalent in the defence system of a country. It is also known as ‘Military’ type of organization and ‘Departmental organization’. In this organization, business unit is organized not according to functions, but on the basis of responsibility and authority. Its peculiar feature is that authority passes from the top to the bottom uninterrupted.


26 S TAFF O RGANIZATION Under this form of organization, the whole job of management is divided according to the type of function involved. It is known as functional organization. Every person has to perform a special task under this organization. Therefore, it is also called specialized organization. The main feature of this organization is that, under it, each function is done by experts. The expert is not only an counsellor, but he is an administrator also.


28 L INE & S TAFF O RGANIZATION To preserve the precision and simplicity of line organization and at the same time to take advantages of the specialization under functional organization this type of organization is formed. The characteristic feature of line and staff organization that line official do managerial work as usual, but they are assisted by the experts. This group of expert is known as “employees”.

This process of grouping the activities is commonly known as Departmentalisation. Departmentalisation can be done through following structural alternatives. 1) Matrix structure 2) Hybrid structure

31 M ATRIX S TRUCTURE An organizational structure that simultaneously groups people and resources by function and product. Results in a complex network of superior- subordinate reporting relationships. The structure is very flexible and can respond rapidly to the need for change. Each employee has two bosses (functional manager and product manager) and possibly cannot satisfy both.


33 Advantages: Clarity about career paths Economies of scale within function Specialization Coordination In-depth skill development Power and prestige Disadvantages: Boredom and monotony Poor decision making Sub-unit conflicts Managerial vacuum

34 H YBRID S TRUCTURES Hybrid Structure The structure of a large organization that has many divisions and simultaneously uses many different organizational structures. Many large organizations adopt this structure so as to incorporate the advantages of both functional and divisional structures.


36 Advantages: 1. Alignment of corporate and divisional goals. 2. Functional expertise and efficiency. 3. Adaptability and flexibility in divisions. Disadvantages: 1. Conflicts between corporate departments and units. 2. Excessive administration overhead. 3. Slow response to exceptional situations
