Eduqas PowerPoint Organisational Design
The latest in the new series of PowerPoint resources aimed at assisting teachers with the delivery of the WJEC/Eduqas A-level Business specification (but are suitable for all boards). These slides and hand out are designed to support the delivery of the Component One topic of organisational design. They explain what is meant by authority, responsibility, chain of command, span control, delegation, hierarchy, centralisation, decentralisation, empowerment and delayering. They also explain the characteristics of different organisational structures including hierarchica (flat and tall) and matrix structures. Later the slides consider the advantages and disadvantages of changing organisational structures including the use of delayering and evaluate the choice between empowerment of staff and the maintenance of control. The slides contain the Quick Fire Five questions and also a practice essay (both with solutions).
