The case:

Sorbet pvt Ltd is an integrated engineering services and manufacturing company operating in Pakistan and Middle East. Company’s unique strengths enabled them to provide integrated package of services encompassing engineering, procurement, manufacturing, construction, and commissioning & maintenance projects. The organizational chart shows a typical structure in a commercial organization. Sorbet functional areas include accounts, projects, marketing, human resources (HR), information systems (IS) and operations. Like other functional areas, the accounts department has three layers of management e.g. a director, a manager and three assistants. The accounts manager, therefore, has a span of control of three as he directly supervises three assistants.


Sorbet is currently facing the communication problem in its employees as it takes a long time for information to pass up and down the chain of command. Structure of organization enables top management to have a tight control over its subordinates. Those at the top of the management layer have more authority than those at lower end. Everybody in the organization knows their place in the organization and has clear roles and responsibilities.


Point to ponder:

Is the existing organization's structure appropriate? If not, suggest appropriate organizational structure that management can design. Give logical reasoning to support your answer.

The Significance of an Appropriate Organizational Structure

Utilizing the proper organizational structure is an important step to having an effective business. The structure serves as the foundation for how a company communicates and divides power. It is also a mechanism that will either promote change or make it more difficult to prosper, according to authors Steve L. McShane and Mary Ann Von Glinow in "Organizational Behavior: Emerging Realities for the Workplace Revolution."

Organizational structures are developed to create an environment that complements the goals and values of an organization. They are usually used to create change that will allow the company to be innovative and competitive in their respective market.

When choosing a specific structure, an organization should review certain information. Some of these topics could include the size, location and culture. The number of departments and upper-level managers is also another factor to consider, because the purpose of an organizational structure is to increase the effectiveness of communication among the levels of power within a company to maximize productivity.

There are many types of organizational structures that have their own advantages and disadvantages. Some of the most recognized structures are the simple, functional, divisional and matrix. A company should carefully choose a structure that complements its standards. For example, a smaller business with only a few departments should consider a line structure, which follows a traditional formula that makes decisions from top to bottom.
