Organizational Design refers to how a business is structured, and it can be a key determining factor in whether or not your business is successful. It’s something that needs to be reviewed regularly to ensure that the structure of the business is evolving along with the business itself.
Most businesses are split up into departments or teams based on similar skills and activities; accounting, human resources, marketing, customer service etc. This can be an effective way to structure your business, but it’s not the only way. Some businesses like to group their employees in teams based on what product they’re working on, or the geographical region they are working on.
As well as the structure of employees, organisational design also refers to how you are structuring your technology and communications.
