WEEK 2: DISCUSSION #2 – CLASSIFYING STRUCTURE 1. A simple structure organizational configuration should be employed with small family owned, or “mom and pop” companies that have an extremely small group of employees, with limited level so of managerial functioning. For instance, in a small family owned business where there is an owner (typically the grandfather, father, or son) and then a very few workers who follow directions from one person; the owner/boss. I grew up on Martha’s Vineyard Island for most of my childhood, which for those who don’t know, is a very small island fun by generations of families who have “claimed” their trade for more generations to come. This island that is roughly 96 square miles, provides a number of different companies applying simple structure organizational configurations. The cafes (Circuit Café, and Among the Flowers Cafe, small local restaurants and diners (the Square Rigger Restaurant and the Seafood Shanty, the Chappaquiddick Ferry, the countless inns and bed and breakfasts (The Harborview Hotel and The Edgartown Inn), and then the countless boat rental and jet ski companies, ice cream parlors, seafood shacks, and oyster bars such as Sun n Fun, The Hungry Whale, The Wharf, and the Quarterdeck. 2. The machine bureaucracy form of structure should be featured among larger companies where employees have specific, structured rules and procedures that are strictly their responsibilities and therefore each member of the company, when following their roles appropriately, will provide an extremely organized operation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
