Organizational structure is the skeleton of an organization.
It is an expression of who is performing the various functions and tasks of a
company and how these people relate to one another. Design in an organization
is much the same as for buildings, clothing and vehicles -- it's a plan. When a
company's leaders develop plans for how their company should function or would
perform better, they undertake the business of organizational design. Good
design takes inventory of all the tasks, functions and goals of a business, and
then develops groupings and orderings of job positions, departments and
individuals to best and most efficiently achieve those ends.
