An organizational chart is a diagram that shows the structure of an organization and the relationships and relative ranks of its parts and positions/jobs. In this organizational chart, it indicates the organizational chart for Tesco's and how each manager of each functional area communicates and link with each other, therefore exemplifying their role in Tesco's. I am going to choose three job titles and discover the similarities and differences between them and their roles. The three job titles that I will choose are: -Store Manager -Assistant Manager -Human Resources Manager The reasons I chose these three job titles because, although they have a managerial job title, I want to understand the roles of being a manager and the potential abilities that need to be used to manage the business by making managerial decisions. The organizational chart indicates all the functional areas, i.e. Human Resources, Finance and the communication between them because they are coordinated at the same level of managing. It shows different job titles, in order to show the role of each manager and the name of their occupation.

This opportunity has arisen for a Temp to Perm HR Manager who will help operate as a business partner to the MD and management team, deploying HR interventions to meet business needs. The organisation 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 organisations 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. Advantages of Organizational Strictures * Specialization - each department focuses on its own work * Accountability - someone is responsible for the section * Clarity - know your and others' roles * Clearly defined reporting lines make it easy for employees to know to whom to report. * It helps to reduce costs because the controlling of various cost control centers are controlled at micro level. Disadvantages of Organizational Structures * Closed communication could lead to lack of focus * Departments can become resistant to change * Coordination may take too long * Difficult for organization to adapt to product/service diversification * Encourages sectional interests and conflicts ?? ?? ?? ??
