Jeff Whippo, a successful Leadership and Coaching consultant, explains the significance of organizational structure. While the mechanistic structures have relative stability and flexibility in the way they organize workers and activities, the process of decision making is usually centralized within a unitary chain of command.
He further opines that a sound organization facilitates the performance of various managerial functions by division of labor, consistent delegation and clarity of authority and responsibility relationship. It helps in keeping the various activities under control and increase the capacity of the enterprise to undertake more activities.
Jeffery Whippo believes that due to decentralization, organic structures tend to encourage more fluid information processing enabling the organization to respond better and faster to unexpected events. It is essential to set up an organizational chart that reflects your future ideal organization. Moreover, this is the structure that you would envision if you had the resources to fill every needed position.
