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.

Functional Structure   HANDOUT PG 118
The organization is structured according to functional areas instead of product lines. The functional
structure groups specialize in similar skills in separate units. This structure is best used when creating
specific, uniform products. A functional structure is well suited to organizations which have a single or
dominant core product because each subunit becomes extremely adept at performing its particular portion
of the process. They are economically efficient, but lack flexibility. Communication between functional
areas can be difficult.
The most widely used structure is the functional or centralized type because this structure is the simplest
and least expensive of the seven alternatives. A functional structure group’s tasks and activities by business
function such as production/operations, marketing, finance/accounting, research and development, and
computer information systems. A university may structure its activities by major functions that include
academic affairs, student services, alumni relations, athletics, maintenance, and accounting. Besides being
simple and inexpensive, a functional structure also promotes specialization of labor, encourages efficiency,
minimizes the need for an elaborate control system, and allows rapid decision making. Some disadvantages
of a functional structure are that it forces accountability to the top, minimizes career development
opportunities, and is sometimes characterized by low employee morale, line/staff conflicts, poor
delegation of authority, and inadequate planning for products and markets.
