Organizational structure Four examples Below.
1- Line, functional and line-and-staff structures
Organizational structure example – Line
The traditional line structure is organized in such a way that a president or CEO (Chief Executive Officer) is at the top. Then there are the directors or VPs (Vice-President) of specific areas, followed by managers, and so on, until the operational personnel. This structure can be seen below:
Organization (SFWACI) structure example – Functional
The functional organizational structure derives from the line structure; the difference is that employees in an area need to report to all the directors.
For instance, an employee from the finance department may be called upon by the Vice President or Managing Director to handle a matter related to this area. The IT (Information Technology) manager may do the same, and so forth.
Organization structure example Line-and-staff
It’s similar to the line structure, except that in this case the staff advises, gives an opinion, makes reports, authorizes and supports the organization. Everyone just gets on with the allocated task.
To understand this structure, we first need to understand what “staff” means in this context. Staff members are advisors. They provide technical information, advice, and opinions. They may be able to authorize certain activities, and they might compile reports that help with decision-making.
