Below them are managers who then oversee a team of individuals who work more directly with the customers and provide direct service. This has been effective as successful teams have been composed of individuals who work well together, think and work alike, and push boundaries of the possibilities of the organization both individually and collectively. This has increased the organization’s depth of knowledge in the particular area we work for (Desai, 2013). However there has been disadvantages to this structure as when the organization needs to make adjustments or new ideas are brought up, it requires input and approval from many areas of the organization that do not work directly with each other (Desai, 2013). There is a lack of cohesion and collectivity among members of different working groups. At the same time, different groups have different goals and focuses when it comes to their success and the success of the organization, so there can be a lack of collective goals and vision when each team is working towards a different purpose and goal. For our particular organization, this structure has worked effective and relatively efficiently. However, some adjustments to personnel or structure could enhance the possibility and success of innovation. Desai, J. (2013). Innovation engine: Driving execution for breakthrough results.

    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.
