Description of Formal Organization. Explanation.


Definition Formal Organization. Description.

A Formal Organization is a relatively stable description of the organization structure (typically in an Organization Chart) and the rules (policies, procedures and regulations) that make up an organization.

It is usually set out in some printed form. In some societies and in some organizations, the structure and rules may be strictly followed; in others, they may be little more than an empty formalism. The so called informal organization is more important in such environments.

The term may also be used to refer to such a (traditional) organization.
