Reference #254: The First 90 Days
An organisation's structure is how it organises its people and technology to support its strategic direction.
Structure comprises these elements:
- Units: how people are grouped such as by function, product or geography.
- Reporting relationships and integration mechanisms: how lines of reporting are set up and how work among units is integrated.
- Decision rights and rules: who is empowered to make what decisions; what rules should be applied to align decisions with strategy.
- Performance measurement and incentive systems.
