Business Management - Characteristics of large scale organisations Characteristics of large scale organisations Business enterprises can be classified according to certain characteristics. So what is a large-scale organisation? There are a number of characteristics that may be used to classify a business enterprise as a large-scale organisation rather than as a small or a medium business enterprise. The following characteristics may be used as a basis of such a classification. Before we attempt this classification, however, we should recall the basic rules of classification - exhaustiveness and exclusivity. The organisations we are attempting to classify as either small, medium or large-scale must all be able to be placed in at least one of the three categories (exhaustiveness) and the organisation being classified must be placed in one, and only one, of the categories (exclusivity). If we take these characteristics and apply them to a large-scale enterprise then the following will normally be true. However, not all large-scale organisations will necessarily exhibit all of the following characteristics: Large scale organisations will normally exhibit these characteristics.
