  • Abdul Kareem Muhammad Saudi Arabia Although in this case study internal operations were being addressed ,the client base was being neglected and some needs were not being met entirely.A restructuring of the business to meet the needs of the business and customer was a win-win situation for all..By just figuring out where everyone belonged.

  • Johan Van Rensburg [[-]] a functional structure is always a good option. it is easier to talk directly to two or three managers and then they can talk to all there subordinates.

  • Muneer Binwaber Yemen I'm working as a PR manager at a solar solution company and I think that the function structure is the ideal structure fro my company. The main problem they have is having too many positions, some of them even do not know their job or how to communicate with each other, this led to involve each other with other's jobs!

  • Lucia Tendai Mawedzere Namibia As the organisation grows , the appropriate structure is function based because the CEO is able to delegate duties to functional managers so that he/she can concerntrate on the imporant issues of the organisation.

  • PAMELA MASON United States of America Leading an Entrepreneurial Venture, requires a function-based structure more than a product-based structure, because of one person assigned to the project and then other managers must report to this one person and next everyone report to the CEO of this company as a result.

  • violet gadson United States of America Having structure in any and all organization is crucial rather it be a medical facility or a restaurant because each department has to be able to communicate in order that the patient/consumer is taken care of properly to get a positive out at the end of the day. People first.

  • Somto Igboanugo Nigeria I believe most hospitals organizational structure is tailored to follow the product-based departmentation...where departments are made based on the service they render and as such even though a patient requires the servics of a lab scientist, pharmacist, consultants etc, it becomes quite challengeing to offer such holistic service to the patient who needs it, because the various deartments are tailored to only offertheir service and thers no link between the deprtments. Is there anything that could be done to correct this?

    • Stephen Bardwell United Kingdom I would suggest a customer liaison manager? someone who can work with patients and departments? someone who can get to know staff at each department and match the services they offer to each patient?
