According to Marquis and Huston (2017), traditional organizations have been using a different kind of structure patterns, and the structure affects communication and decision making. For the purpose of this week’s discussion, we will look into an organization that this writer works for and see what kind of structure and decision making the organization have and also will discuss the formal and informal leaders.

Marquis and Huston (2017) explain as Line structure has a clearly defined authority and responsibility that leads to efficient and simplicity of relationships.

    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.
