An organisational infrastructure refers to the typically hierarchical arrangement of lines of authority, communications, rights and duties of an organisation.
An organisational infrastructure refers to the typically hierarchical arrangement of lines of authority, communications, rights and duties of an organisation. The Organisational structure determines how the roles, power and responsibilities are assigned, controlled, and coordinated, and how information flows between the different levels of management.
A structure typically depends on the organisation’s objectives and strategy. Within a centralised structure, the top layer of management retains most of the decision making power and has tight control over departments and divisions. In a decentralised structure, however, decision making power is distributed and the departments and divisions may have varying degrees of independence.
