Composite Organization If both functional and projectized divisions coexist in a firm, this would result in the composite form. This form is rarely observed for a long duration. The composite form leads to ﬂexibility. It enables the firm to meet special problems by appropriate adaptation of its organizational structure. However there are distinct dangers involved in using the composite structure. Dissimilar groupings within the same accountability center tend to encourage overlap, duplication, and friction because of incompatibility of interests. Advantages : Based on the criticality of the project the organization structure can be implemented. Employees get to work in both the organization structure and like to utilize their skills to enhance the company’s goals. Disadvantages : No specific organization structure will result in employee dissatisfaction as they have no confirmation as to on which project/function they might work. The company where I used to work which was an automobile company was more sort of Matrix organization where usually lot of projects used to take place which used to handle in a way of projectized organization whereas the regular routine day to day activities were handle by the functional department. I feel usually big organizations adopt matrix organization structure because they need the quick response usually when they are working on the project and regular activities to be controlled in a structured sophisticated manner like functional organization structure.
