Matrix organizational Structure
The matrix organization is a structure in which functional and staff personnel are assigned to both a basic functional area and to a project or product manager. It provides duel channels of authority, performance responsibility, evaluation and control (Pearce, J.A. II, & Robinson, R.B.(2009).
* Organizational structure is the formal layout of managerial hierarchies and the grouping of employees, departments and business units within a company (Ingram, 2014). Organizational structure can be seen as the foundation where a company can grow; when looking at the organizational chart it can help expose the key positions in helping the company succeed. There are four steps in indentifying the key positions. The first one is to identify the positions in the organizational structure chart that have a high number of direct subsidiaries that have a comparison with similar positions (Ingram, 2014). The second step is to identify the front line positions that are shown at the bottom of the organization chart. The bottom of the chart shows the lowest positions in the company. Studying the organization chart can help you in understanding that of the bottom level jobs are important to the company.
* Step three would be to analyze the job descriptions and also the strategic contributions of each executive position that is in the organizational structure. The top positions are essential because they help in providing direction and supervision to all layers of employment in the organization. Seeing if all executive position are being used in full effect can be determined by showing who the middle management reports to; an example is if a majority of the middle management reports to the CEO directly this means the other executive positions are not being used to its full potential (Ingram, 2014). The fourth step is to look for any positions that have a connection between different departments, business units and any markets. Any employees that have a relationship between many different areas can help provide some key support in the organizational structure (Ingram, 2014).
