Organizational Structure

The organizational structure constitutes the overall framework to manage a business entity. The development of organizational structure is dependent on several factors and elements, which ultimately results in organizational units that operate as per effective business process flow. This makes the organizational structure a well-defined and clear framework to operate accordingly and helps achieve effective internal control and enhance performance efficiency. This concept applies to all business entities.
