Project management organizational structure can be summed up in three different traditional types: Functional, Matrix and Pure Project. Each structure can be specifically related to certain types of projects. Some are a better fit to maximize the outcomes or objectives of the project. The main objective of any team is to maximize the outcome by using limited resources. Efficiency is highly important and of course quality is a major factor as well. Numerous The first type of organizational structure is functional. This structure is a well rounded structure and is capable of being used in most basic work environments and projects. Functional structure can be assigned one of two ways. One way has one manager assigned to the project leader position. This manager divides the duties among the different departments to work toward the overall objective. This manager is responsible for all aspects of the project and works to oversee all the progress. The second way is to allow each department within an organization to contribute as a department to specified tasks that will be brought together to reach a larger goal. Each department manager is the team leader for their department and project.

    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.
