Organizing


Organizing is the process of bringing together the right resource for any project. The purpose of organization structure is to establish formal system of roles for team members to achieve the organization objectives. This function follows planning per management gurus. According to Chester Barnard, “Organizing is a function by which the concern is able to define the role positions, the jobs related and the co- ordination between authority and responsibility. Hence, a Project Manager must be able to achieve effective integration of all resources and functions by considering the interests of client, team members, functional managers, support personnel, and other stakeholders.

The design of individual jobs within the organization is part of Organizing. All the activities which have to be performed as part of a project have to be listed out in the first stage. Thereafter, the project manager needs to combine and group related activities into units or department. The authority and relationships are to be established among various groups to enable smooth interaction toward the achievement of the organizational goal and need to be communicated.
