Analysis of Vertical and Horizontal Structure• Vertical and Horizontal Structure often work synonymously.• Vertical Structure establishes top supervisors who make decisions about how to run the organization.• Horizontal Structure breaks down the organization into smaller divisions overseen by department head who report to top supervisors.• Vertical Structure dictates how authority is delegated (top to bottom)• Horizontal Structure dictates how each division is integrated into the organization.
Matrix Structure• Boeing uses the Matrix structure to runs its organization. - Different divisions run independently due to the diversity of Boeing’s products. - Boeing is an organization that has constant changes in technology, which means that collaboration amongst the divisions is essential for success. - Boeing is a network organization with independent, single-function firms that collaborate on a good or service. - Resource utilization is efficient because key resources are shared across several important programs or products at the same time.
