Common Organization Structures


Managements need to seriously consider how they wish to structure the organization. Some of the critical factors that need to be considered are;

Functional Organization Structure


The functional structure is the most common model found in most organizations. Organizations with such a structure are divided into smaller groups based on specialized functional areas, such as operations, finance, marketing, Human Resources, IT, etc.







VP SALES

VP OPERATION

VP FINANCE



VP HR

PLANT MANAGER

AUDIT MANAGER

ACCOUNTS MANAGER

The organization’s top management team consists of several functional heads (such as the VP Operations, VP Sales/Marketing). Communication generally occurs within each functional department and is communicated across departments through the department heads.


This structure provides greater operational efficiency as employees are functionally grouped based on expertise and shared functions performed. It allows increased specialization as each group of specialists can operate independently.
In spite of the above benefits there are some issues that arise with this structure. When different functional areas turn into silos they focus only on their area of responsibility and do not support other functional departments. Also expertise is limited to a single functional area allowing limited scope for learning and growth.
