ZIMSEC O Level Business Studies Notes: Functional organisation structure
- This is the traditional form of organisational structure
- The organisation’s tasks and operations are divided into groups/departments based on organisational functions/function areas
- Examples of such functions include marketing, finance, human resources, production/operations and IT (Information Technology)
- Each department is usually headed by a functional head who reports to a given central authority
- Each department focuses and specialises on its own function
|Staff are managed and report to a specialist who understands their work||Coordination can be difficult|
|There is specialisation||Organisational strategy can be sacrificed in pursuit of functional department strategies|
|There is room for advancement and promotion for people in each functional department||Not suitable for very large organisations|
|It is easy to implement and understand|
|Suitable for a wide range of organisations|
|Can be used by organisations of different sizes|
