Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

the professional bureaucracy form of structure coordinates the various activities of the organization by standardizing the employee’s skills rather than the process. The structure is followed by highly specialized and trained professionals such as lawyers, hospitals, universities etc. The organizations that have a complex environment follow this type of structure.What kinds of firms should use the divisional form of structure?Solution:Such a form of structure is followed when the organization wants to coordinate the activities between parallel units of operations. Mostly the European companies follow this type of structure in order to retain the power of centralization in the system.

The Sony Corporation would be an example of a divisional form of structure. Thecompany has different divisions such as and electronic manufacturing arm, a motionpicture division, and even a music licensing division. All of different divisions fall under the sony parent company
