Organizational structure affects company performance, employee performances and interactions and also innovation. Since the fabric affects the flow of authority, in a bureaucratic environment, for instance, it is harder to share ideas and information. A circular organization structure, for example, has the leaders and executives at the center of it all (Zhang &Kwan, 2018). Power is divided into rings. However, the leaders spread vision outwards, and it is much easier for creative employees to share their opinions with the leaders. A functional organization structure groups all the departments separately where they are then headed by a visionary leader who can hear ideas and implement them more easily. My organization is rigidly departmentalized. The top-down approach is not collaborative, and sharing of creative ideas is limited. I would recommend that the company performs benchmarking exercises on similar organizations with different structures.
