      • A process in which managers develop or change their organization’s structure.
    • Work specialization
      • A component of organization structure that involves having each discrete step of a job done by a different individual rather than having one individual do the whole job.
  • Economies and Diseconomies of Work Specialization Exhibit 5.1
  • Organizational Structure: Control
    • Chain of command
      • The continuous line of authority that extends from upper organizational levels to the lowest levels and clarifies who reports to whom.
    • Unity of Command
      • The management principle that no person should report to more than one boss.
    • Span of control
      • The number of subordinates a manager can direct efficiently and effectively.
  • Chain of Command Exhibit 5.2
  • Organizational Structure: Control (cont’d)
    • Authority
      • The rights inherent in a managerial position to give orders and expect them to be obeyed.
    • Power
      • An individual’s capacity to influence decisions.
    • Responsibility
      • An obligation to perform assigned activities.
  • Types of Organizational Authority
    • Line authority
      • The position authority (given and defined by the organization) that entitles a manager to direct the work of operative employees.
    • Staff authority
      • Positions that have some authority (e.g., organization policy enforcement) but that are created to support, assist, and advise the holders of line authority.
  • Line Versus Staff Authority Exhibit 5.3
  • Authority Versus Power: Authority Exhibit 5.4a
  • Authority Versus Power: Power Exhibit 5.4b
  • Types of Power Coercive power Power based on fear. Reward power Power based on the ability to distribute something that others value. Legitimate power Power based on one’s position in the formal hierarchy. Expert power Power based on one’s expertise, special skill, or knowledge. Referent power Power based on identification with a person who has desirable resources or personal traits. Exhibit 5.5
  • Centralization And Decentralization
    • Centralization
      • A function of how much decision-making authority is pushed down to lower levels in an organization; the more centralized an organization, the higher the level at which decisions are made
    • Decentralization
      • The pushing down of decision-making authority to the lowest levels of an organization
  • Types of Departmentalization Functional Product Customer Geographic Process Exhibit 5.6
  • Departmentalization
    • Functional departmentalization
      • The grouping of activities by functions performed
    • Product departmentalization

    • Customer departmentalization
      • The grouping of activities by common customers
    • Geographic departmentalization
      • The grouping of activities by territory
    • Process departmentalization
      • The grouping of activities by work or customer flow

    • Mechanistic organization
      • The bureaucracy; a structure that is high in specialization, formalization, and centralization
  • Contingency Variables Affecting Structure
