The importance of efficient organisation structures lies in assuming a definite structure wherein the authority and the chain of command is precisely defined. Such ‘value-adding’ activity directly correlated with the extent of organisational effectiveness any organisation can achieve. According to Boudreau and Ramstad (2005), the organisation structure also outlines the strategic process for every organisation. Therefore, the capabilities, competences and expertise must be fully integrated to the organisation structure where they can have the greatest effect. Though it maybe a processual initiative, the organisation structures could affect the measure of decisions and behaviours that brings success to the organisation (Boudreau and Ramstad, 2006). A notion worthy of note is that the precise organisation structure assists in maximizing the efficiency and productivity of the organisation through facilitating the coordination of group of individuals and efficiently intertwining of employees with means of communications.

Organisational effectiveness that achieved through the organisation structure focuses on how leaders affect the organisational performance albeit being adhocratic or bureaucratic (Robbins and Barnwell, 2006, p. 131). In simpler terms, the personality of the leaders predicts leadership style, leadership style impacts employee attitudes and team functioning that, in effect, predict organisational effectiveness. Leadership involves the persuasion of individuals to give up purely selfish interests and contribute to the overall performance of the organisation. Leaders influence in two ways. The first is exerted on direct social interactions known as leadership in organisation. The second is evident on decisions about directions and objectives known as leader of organisations. The latter has direct impact on organisation structure as the leader guides the collective action by setting goals, defining roles and staffing positions, acquiring and allocating resources and establishing policies
