Most complex of all designs - requires both vertical and horizontal flows of authority and communication. In large organization, there is often a need to work on major products or project each of which is strategically significant.

Advantages of The Matrix Structure

- Project objectives are clear

- Many channels of communication

- Workers can see visible results of their work

- Shutting down a project can be accomplished relatively easily

- Facilitates the use of specialized personnel, equipment, and facilities

Disadvantages of The Matrix Structure

- Can result in higher overhead

- Dual lines of budget authority

- Dual sources of reward and punishment

- Shared authority

- Dual reporting channels

- Need for an extensive and effective communication system

All the structure has their own advantages and disadvantages.

It is task of strategists to choose the type of structure that would suite their strategies best.

We usually conceive of organization structure as a chart consisting of boxes in which the names of position or designations of personnel (and sometimes the name of the person occupying the position) are written in a hierarchical order along with the depiction of the relationship that exists between various positions. To a strategist, an organization structure is not only a chart but much more.

This support staff are employees the CEO surround himself whom he recognizes are competent people who are just as capable, often more capable than himself in specific areas. These are people he respects and who will perform at a high level of proficiency in their field of expertise.

And very importantly, these are trustworthy people he can consult for vital input in making major decisions. The CEOs, job then, is always working with these team members for the betterment of the company.

Johnson and Johnson is the leader in kids segment. Organisational structure divides work and reduces workload but accomplishing more work. They target masses and their main strength lies in their advertising strategy. They use emotional appeal to induce consumer and their advertising connects wit the audience. Their characterization in the film and their presentation just enhance their image and boost their market share.
