Organization Theory - 6

In the last blog, we looked at organization and its 5 components briefly. In today's blog we get the element of variation across organization and discuss them briefly. 

It is quite intuitive that not every organization uses all the parts; some are simple while some could be visualized as having a complex interrelation between the components. 

It is to be understood that the central purpose of any organizational structure is coordination of the work that is to be achieved. We could classify organization into 5 groups based on the coordination focus of these organizations, they are:

  • Simple Structure
  • Machine Bureaucracy
  • Professional Bureaucracy
  • Divisionalized
  • Adhocracy

To understand these types of organization, we need to understand some very essential terms used in organizational design; these are also considered dimensions of organization structure. These are:

  • Complexity
  • Formalization
  • Centralization

We shall deal about these in the next few blogs.
