CONCEPTS OF ORGANISATION STUDY

DEFINITION OF THE ORGANISATION STUDY


Organisation study is a field of study that investigates the impact that individuals,
groups and structure have on behaviour within the organisation for the purpose of applying
such knowledge towards improving organisation effectiveness.
The typically hierarchicalarrangement of lines of authority, communications, rights
and duties of an organization. Organizationalstructure determines how the roles, power and
responsibilities are assigned, controlled, and coordinated, and how information flows
between the different levels of management.
A structure depends on the organization'sobjectives and strategy. In a centralized
structure, the top layer of management has most of the decision making power and has tight
control over departments and divisions. In a decentralized structure, the decision making
power is distributed and the departments and divisions may have different degrees of
independence. A company such as Proctor & Gamble that sells multiple products may
organize their structure so that groups are divided according to each product and depending
on geographical area as well.

ORGANISATION
SIDCOs organisation is decided by kerala government .there is executive
chirman,board of Directors ,and managing director .they all together and 11 divisonal
managers include in the organization of SIDCO
ORGANISATION STRUCTURE
Organisation structure will show how the job tasks are formally divided grouped and
co-ordinated in the organisation.The organizational structure pertains to both reporting and
operational relationships, provided they have some degree of permanence.
