  1. 1. ORGANISATION STRUCTURE STUDY 1 PART-A 1. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY In the year 1918 the company came into existence under the name Government Soap Factory. Shri.S.G. Shastry a Science student went to UK for higher studies in Oil Technology. After returning to India, he conducted several experiments. He evolved with a soap perfume blend using sandalwood oil as the main base to manufacture the toilet soap & thus the famous ‘Mysore Sandal Soap’ took birth in the year 1918. The factory started functioning in its new premises from 1st July 1957. From this year onwards till date the factory has never looked back and it has achieved growth and development in production, sales and profits. The initially named Government Soap Factory was renamed as Karnataka Soaps and Detergents Ltd on 1st October 1980& its trademark is “SHARABHA”, The Company is a leading sandalwood soap manufacturer in the country, and they have demand for their products in both domestic as well as international market. The main objective of the study was to analyze the factors that influence the changeover of the soaps, to study the organizational function, to study the interdependence of these departments, to analyze the mode of awareness of Mysore sandal soap. The company’s phrase is “From the house of Mysore Sandal Soap”. Mysore Sandal Soap enjoys the highest share in the sandal soap segment. The training has exposed me to many facts of an organization and also helps me to gain practical knowledge and know about cooperation & relationship of each department in KS&DL.

  2. 2. ORGANISATION STRUCTURE STUDY 2 PART-B 2. INDUSTRY PROFILE: Soap is one of the commodities which have become an indispensable part of the life of modern world. Since it is non durable consumer goods, there is a large market for it. The whole soap industry is experiencing changes due to innumerable reasons such as government relations environment and energy problems increase in cost of raw material etc. The changing technology and ever existing desire by the individual and the organization to produce a better product at a more economical rate has also acted as catalyst for the dynamic process of change. More and more soap manufactures are trying to capture a commanding market share by introducing new products. The soap industry in India faces a cut throat competition with multinational companies dominate the market. They are also facing severe threat from dynamic and enterprising new entrance especially during 1991-92. If we look back into the history of soaps & detergents, mankind knew about soaps nearly 2000 years back i.e. in 70 A.D. when Mr. Elder accidentally discovered the soap, when roasted meat over flowed on the glow in ashes. This lump like product was soap & had foaming & cleansing character. In 1192 A.D. the first commercial batch of soaps was made & marketed by M/s Bristol soap market in London, from there in 1662A.D. the first patent for making soap was taken in London. The world consumption of soap in 1884A.D. was said to be 2lakh tonnes p.a. 2.1 HISTORY OF THE SOAP: Soap manufacturing was started in North America. Some American companies with well known names were started 200 years ago. During middle age soap was made at various places in Italy, France, England & other countries. France became famous & many small factories were established there. CHRIST COLLEGE INSTITUTE OF MANAGENENT
  3. 3. ORGANISATION STRUCTURE STUDY 3 In India the first soap industry was established by North West soap company in1897 at Meerat following the swadeshi movement. From 1905 on wards few more factories were setup. They are, • Mysore soap factory at Bangalore • Godrej soap at Bombay • Bengal chemicals • Tata oil mills • 1930 lever brothers company 2.2 THE INDIAN SOAP INDUSTRY SCENARIO: The Indian soap industry has long been dominated by hand full of companies such as: 1. Hindustan levers limited. 2. Tata oil mills (taken over by HLL) 3. Godrej soaps private limited. The Indian soap industry continued to flourish very well until 1967-68, but began to stagnate & soon it started to recover & experienced a short upswing in 1974. This increase in demand can be attributed due to; 1. Growth of population. 2. Income & consumption increase. 3. Increase in urbanization. 4. Growth in degree of personal hygiene. Soap manufacture has 2 classifications, organized and unorganized sectors. KSDL comes under organized sector. CHRIST COLLEGE INSTITUTE OF MANAGENENT
  4. 4. ORGANISATION STRUCTURE STUDY 4 2.3 PRESENT STATUS: Market scenario: India is the ideal market for cleaning products. Hindustan liver, which towers over the cleaning business, sells in all over the cleaning business but the tiniest of Indian settlements. The 7.4lakhs tons per annum soap market in India in crawling along at 4% The hope lies in raising Rupee worth, the potential for which is high because the Indian soap market is pseudo in nature & it is amazingly complex being segmented not only on the basis of price benefits, but even a range of emotions within that outlining framework. 2.4 PROBLEMS OF SOAP INDUSTRY: Soap industry faces some problems incase of raw materials. The major ingredients are soap ash, linear alkyl, benzene& sodium. Tripoli phosphate poses number of serious problems in terms of availability. The demand supply gap for vegetable oil is 1.5 to 2 lakh tons & is met through imports. In recent times, caustic soda and soap ashes in the cheaper varieties of soaps are quite high. SLOGAN: “Natural products with exotic fragrance”. CHRIST COLLEGE INSTITUTE OF MANAGENENT

After World War 1, there was a slump in the sandal wood export to the west. It dropped a blanket of gloom over business & trading in India. The Maharaja of Mysore turned this threat in to an opportunity, by sowing the budding seeds of KS & DL on the out skirts of Koti forest, near Bangalore in 1918. The project took shape with the engineering skill and expertise of a top-level team with the inspection of the Diwan of Mysore Late Sir. M. Visvesvaraya & with the service of scientists late Sir S.G.

Then, the factory shifted its operations to Rajajinagar industrial area, Bangalore in July 1957.

ORGANISATION STRUCTURE STUDY 16 PART – C 4.McKinsey’s 7S Framework: According to Waterman, organization change is not simply a matter of structure, although structure is significant variable in the management of change. Again it is also not a simple relationship between strategy and structure, although strategy is also a critical aspect. In their view effective organizational change may be understood to be a complex relationship between strategy, structure, system, style, skills & shared values. The first three elements- strategy, structure &system are considered the “hardware” of success. The next four – style skills, staff, and shared values are called the “software”.

  38. 38. ORGANISATION STRUCTURE STUDY 38 PART- D 5. SWOT ANALYSIS: 5.1 STRENGTHS • The factory is located in the heart of the city & has all infrastructure facilities. They require quick movement of raw materials & finished products. Due to its proximity, habitation movement of men and material are easy. • The company has modern manufacturing facility with maximum capacity, brand loyalty of consumers and has 90% of sandal soap market, foreign technology to suit indigenous condition due to government participation, little financial crisis with backup from government. • A very good dealership network, which ensures that the products reach every loop and corner. • A very little competition for its major products sandal soap. • An ISO 9002 certified company has its own brand image. • An ISO 14001 company, which commits to reserve the natural environment in the production of its quality products to the satisfaction of its customers. • Diversified product range keeps the company stable. • Abundant availability of raw materials.

  39. 39. ORGANISATION STRUCTURE STUDY 39 • Two sandalwood oil factories in Shimoga and Mysore, which produce 75% of world’s sandalwood oil. 5.2 WEAKNESS: • Slow growth rate 6.2 growths over 40 years against the product of 80%. • Power intensive: dependent on power may miscarriage here results in under utilization of capacity. • High oriented cause due to excessive labour force. • Low turn over resulting in low profits. • Defective marketing strategy lacks effective advertising and publicity. • Needs updating with times in terms of plant and machinery. • R&D is not effective in as much as it has not made any brake through in new products. • The large proportion of the target area is upper middle class and upper class people, it has very few offer to lower middle class. • It has only 8% of the total detergent market share. • Due to lack of direct sales, debts with many dealers turning bad. • Unskilled labor coupled with excess labor hampers profitability. • Product lies under utilized. 5.3 OPPORTUNITIES: 1. The toilet soap and the detergents market is an over expanding industry and a major company likes KS& DL with its manufacturing expertise can call the shots if it reaches peak manufacturing capacity. 2. Good export market should tap foreign market vigorously. 3. At present it has Good raw material sources to enhance production. 5.4 THREATS: 1. Competition from other global leaders like HLL. 2.

To protect the financial interest of the company. PART- E 6. LEARNING EXPERIENCE: The learning experience gained by me during the in-plant training was very much practical oriented. Mostly all the concepts and theories, which I studied in the class, are applicable practically. The overall study of the organization reveals that the company has grown tremendously since its incorporation from 1918, now it has independent units for manufacturing sandalwood oils, toilet soaps, washing soaps, detergents, cosmetics, incense sticks and industrial products. The initially named Government Soap Factory was renamed as Karnataka Soaps and Detergents Ltd in 1st October 1980. Its trademark is “Sharabha”, the slogan stands as “Natural products with exotic fragrance”. The company is a leading sandalwood soap Manufacturer in the country. Even though they have demand for their products in both domestic as well as international market, They are not able to establish themselves as market leaders due to various reasons such as extensive work force, non-utilization of installed capacities of manufacturing, lack of proper distribution network, lack of expenditure in the areas of advertisements and publicity, competitions of various soaps and detergents and lack of timely decisions. The company has an effective human resources department where in the employees are given excellent packages, incentives and extensive care is taken by providing facilities such as canteen, medical facilities, motivation classes and extracurricular activities. I had a great time working on the project, as it gives insights into the working environment of an organization. The training has exposed me to many facts of an CHRIST COLLEGE INSTITUTE OF MANAGENENT
  41. 41. ORGANISATION STRUCTURE STUDY 41 organization and also helped me to gain practical knowledge, which will go a long way in the horizon of our career. I became more aware of the soap industry and the role played by KSDL.  Structure: I got to know how decisions are communicated, the flow of decision process. The way in which departments are classifieds on the basis of their functioning. The functions of each departments and its relevance. The way in which the departments are inter-linked and coordinated.  Skills: Through skills, how the training needs are satisfied to the employees of different grades. The different on-job and off-job training given to the employees.  Style: Through style, I got to know how decisions flow from top to bottom in KSDL. How the production process is planned and worked out. How self managed teams perform to achieve the targets set by the management.  Strategy: Through strategy, I found how strategies were formulated to overcome the rigorous competition. Strategy is very much essential for the company to survive in the market. Supply Chain Management is one of the strategies adopted by KSDL, through which they are able to reduce the cost of production and increase profitability.  System: System plays an important role of supporting and facilitating various activities that are carried out within the organization. KSDL adopts latest system. Overall the learning experience was quite satisfactory which enabled me to experience a slice of the real and ruthless industry. CHRIST COLLEGE INSTITUTE OF MANAGENENT
  42. 42. ORGANISATION STRUCTURE STUDY 42 7. FINDINGS: ♦It is a company wholly owned by government, so it has to follow the rules made by the government. ♦The company is under utilizing its capacity. ♦Its production is based on old technology, which leads to more wastes in the production process. ♦Consumer awareness of its products is very less except for Mysore Sandal soap. ♦Its products are not available easily in district places of states other than Karnataka. ♦There is mismatch in production & sales activity. ♦Recruitment in the company has been stopped since 1988 due to some circumstances and recruitments are taking place only in some department. 8. SUGGESTION: KSDL has a wide variety of products but people are unaware of many products like Agarbathi, Detergents, Baby soaps etc., as its marketing is very weak. So it should spend both money and man power on advertising. They should also improve in building up the strong marketing strategy in order to improve the distribution channels and could be able to increase the sales other than the Mysore Sandal Soap. Thus the R&D should work effectively and achieve the break-through in new products and can make the company to earn more profits. The management should design Training and Development programmes and Career Development programmes and identify the skills or knowledge. CHRIST COLLEGE INSTITUTE OF MANAGENENT
