Organization design refers to the overall configuration of positions and interrelationships among positions within the organization. Design therefore mainly refers to how an organization is structured i.e. how tasks, power and control are distributed within the organization, and how communication is affected. An organization's design is usually represented through the organizational chart. A chart can show several things at a glance. For example, the levels of management, the reporting relationships and existence of any staff positions. Charts however cannot capture the complex dynamics of many organizations especially the large ones. An organization's design can be affected by several contingencies; these include size, technology and environment. Relative to larger organizations smaller organizations tend to be less specialized, less standardized, and more centralized.
