She knows that I have just left full time education and has asked me to help her prepare to give a presentation on job roles, functions and organisational structures. I decide to use a real organisation that I am familiar with as the basis for my report. ________________ Analyse the relationship between job roles, functions and an organisations structure, using appropriate illustrative examples.

Conclusion

In a tall structure there are many functions and job roles which support the company by Human Resources it will support the company if they recruited the right staff that do the job effectively this will then help the company to succeed its goals. In a flat structure there are fewer functions but this means that it allows more flexibility with the company and allows more movement within the organisation so for example if the Managing Director is absent the person below can take over so therefore the company will still be functioning. ________________ ________________ Task 4f: ________________ Conclusion ? what does a correctly organised structure allow the organisation to achieve? ________________ An organisation can be structured in many different ways, depending on their objectives. The structure of an organisation will determine the modes in which it operates and performs. Organisational structure allows the CEO of Tesco allocates responsibilities for different functions. Also a high correctly organised structure allows the organisation to achieve their aims and objectives this is because a structure easily allows the aims and objective it clearly shows what needs to be achieved by each functional area. ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ Mrs Watterston Edexcel Business BTEC Level 2 2010/2011 ...read more.
