Organizational Structure


Definition: an Organizational Structure is the way an organization is built up.
One must distinguish a formal from an informal OS. The formal structure of an organization is typically represented in the form of an organization chart.
The most common OS is the organizational hierarchy. But organizations can also take the form of a matrix organization or a network organization.
The informal OS of an organization is the network of social interactions among its employees, unrelated to the firm's formal authority structure.
