Organizational Structure and Strategy Implementation
Organizational structure determines a company's ability o implement different strategies.
In this paper, we describe Amazon as a typical company that is organized as a hierarchy. The
paper also describes how specialization, coordination, cooperation, and control are practiced in
Amazon. It further examines how Amazon's structure and management system promotes the
effective implementation of its strategy. Additionally, it uses W. L. Gore (Gore) & Associates
case study describes how specialization, coordination, cooperation, and control are practiced at
Gore. Since typical control mechanisms are lacking at Gore, we explain how the company has
operated effectively. Finally, the paper will explain how Gore's organizational structure and
management systems promote effective strategy implementation.
Different companies employ varying organizational structures depending on various
factors such as size, goals, and environment. An example of a typical company that is organized
as a hierarchy includes Amazon. It has a hierarchical structure mainly because of its large size
and due to the perception that large firms operate efficiently through such a structure. Amazon
stands as the largest internet retailer with over five hundred and sixty thousand employees.
Therefore, the structure adopted eases management, regulation, and control because all the
employees report to Jeff Bezos, the company's CEO, and founder.
Amazon practices specialization, coordination, cooperation, and control aspects in its
hierarchical structure to facilitate goal attainment. The company's success depended not only on

it traditionally and are currently used by large firms. The structure enhances extensive top-down
control over global e-commerce operations. Hence Amazon can control its global investments
