Organisational structures can be understood to represent the “anatomy” of the organisation. They describe the formal design of the resources and responsibilities. Different organisational structures lead to different behaviours of employees, because the structure and subordination in hierarchies define the focus of work as well as the official channels of knowledge transfer. The aim of this Chapter is to give an overview of organisational structures and to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of each.
