Objectives Objectives The structure of the organization is a function of  the organization s strategy.  Establishing the right  structure for the organization is one of the key  elements to implementing strategy, especially at  the corporate-level.  To take an extreme example,  your local restaurant and GE are organized quite  differently, and more to the point what works for  diversified GE will hardly work for the single  business restaurant and vice versa.

    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.
