Functional Organizational Structure
Companies can have different organizational structures. The structure of the company determines the style of the company. In the functional structure, the organization is divided into smaller groups by specialties. For example, IT, finance, manufacturing, sales, marketing, and human resources. Some people call these functional areas “scattered” objects. The top management of a company usually consists of several functional leaders. For example, CFO and COO. Communication usually occurs within each functional department. Information is transferred between departments through department heads. Functional departments improve work efficiency. Employees with general skills and knowledge are grouped by function. Thus, each team of specialists can work independently. Leadership acts as a crossover point between functional areas. This arrangement allows for increased specialization. The disadvantage of this structure is that the various functional groups may not interact with each other. This type of interaction potentially reduces flexibility and innovation. Functional structures can also be susceptible to tunnel vision. Moreover, each function perceives the organization only within the framework of its own activity. Recent trends are aimed at combating such shortcomings. The company employs teams that cross traditional departmental boundaries. Cross-functional communication promotion is also used. Functional structures are emerging in many organizations across many industries. They can be most effective in large corporations producing relatively homogeneous goods. Small companies require a lot of flexibility and creativity. Companies feel constrained by the communication and creative silos that functional structures create.
