The effectiveness and functional capacity of any organization is determined by two major elements. The first of these is Organizational Structure, and this has traditionally provided the basis for corporate management paradigms. One is all aware of the structural components such as finance, physical plants, product, market position, and access to resources and market. One also knows that infrastructure elements such as governance models, reporting structures, staffing models, information management systems, strategic planning, and research and development allocations are critical to the success of any organization. In fact, organizational structure provides the basic architecture, or skeleton, for an organization and determines the potential extent of its particular capacity.
