Below are some notes from Chapter 7:

What Are the Most Common Organization Structures?

Functional structures group together people using similar skills.

Divisional structures group together people by products, customers, or locations.

Matrix structures combine the functional and divisional structures.

 Team structures make extensive use of permanent and temporary teams.

Network structures make extensive use of strategic alliances and outsourcing.

Organization charts describe the formal reporting realtionships in organizations. The organization chart is not an organizational structure.

Organization structure is formal arrangement of people, tasks, positions, and reporting relationships

Organization chart is a diagram of positions—job titles, and reporting relationships—the hierarchy of authority, within a team or organization

Division of labor – people and groups performing different jobs, ideally ones for which they are skilled

Formal structurethe “official” structure, the way things are supposed to operate. The formal structure is not a structure in itself. One of the more common structures is a formal strubture. 

Organizations also have informal structures

Informal structure a “shadow” organization made up of unofficial but often critical working relationships between members. The informal structure exists within a fomal structure and is not a structure by itself. 

– Informal structures have good points and bad points

Social network analysis identifies the informal structure by discovering who employees communicate with and ask for help.

Good points include employees assisting each other, providing emotional and social support, building friendships and helping the organization adapt to change.

Bad points include eavesdropping, gossip, rumors, breeding resistance to change and providing distractions.
