Functional Organizational Structure
“A functional organizational structure is a structure that consists of activities such as coordination, supervision, and task allocation. The organizational structure types determine how the organization performs or operates. The term organizational structure refers to how the people in an organization are grouped and to whom they report. One traditional way of organizing people is by function. Some common functions within an organization include production, marketing, human resources, and accounting.
This organizing of specialization leads to operational efficiency where employees become specialists within their own realm of expertise. The most typical problem with a functional organizational structure is however that communication within the company can be rather rigid, making the organization slow and inflexible. ”[from Wikipedia]
