This assignment is part of a Design Simulation Activity where we created our own case study, we made an organization with traits from a dice game. I have that paper for you to review explaining the fictional organization and our strategy.
This assignment is the second part.
Its 4 pages double spaced, APA.
“Now that you have created your fictional organization and described its strategy, you can begin to work on the next two elements of the organization design: structure, and processes and lateral capability.
Using the organization and strategy you created in part 1 create an organizational structure to fit this strategy.
How does the structure follow from the strategy? What are the major divisions of your organization and what are they responsible for? How many employees work in each division, and how are divisions structured? To answer these questions, it may be helpful to create an organizational chart for your organization.
In addition to describing how you have organized your departments, consider these other important elements of organization structure:
1. Centralization and decentralization: What functions should be centralized? Where should decision making be decentralized? Why?
2. Span of control: Will your organization have a wide or narrow span of control? Why? How many management and leadership roles do you anticipate for your organization?
3. Division of labor: What jobs require deep specialization? Which require low specialization?
What are the advantages and disadvantages of this structure? Knowing what we have learned about various structure types and their advantages and disadvantages, what potential problems can you anticipate from this structure?”
