Prasanna, Student (University), Sri Lanka, Member

  2. Coordinate them
  3. Cluster the jobs into the units
  4. Establish relationships
  5. Establish formal lines of authority

- Departmentalization (practiced by most of the org)
- Work specialization (practiced after the industrial revolution up to now)

- Centralised or decentralised (mostly in government versus private sector)
- Formalization....Sign up
