Answer preview

The organizational design influences the nature of business members’ interaction within its operations, either with other internal stakeholders or external business partners. An organization design describes how a company’s tasks are divided, grouped, and coordinated (Robbins, Judge, & Millett, 2015). Division of work involves work specialization, and coordination involves departmentalization and creating a chain of command. The latter also involves defining the span of control, formalization, and scope of decision making authority (centralization or decentralization).(1616words)
