CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
Background to  the Study
Organizations are formed by groups of people with the aim of achieving organizational goals. To achieve these goals, organizations create inner order and relations among organizational parts that can be described as organizational structure (Kristian, 2000). Spekman and Stern (2000) affirm that due to the dynamic nature of organizational structure, it sometimes cannot meet requirements of efficiency and adoptability.
Classics in the field of organization theory represented many different schools of influencing factors on organizational structure. Some believed that certain factors, such as size, environment, or technology, determined organizational structure (Duncan, 1972; Bourgeois, McAllister & Mtchell, 1978). They argued that these factors imposed economic or other constrains on organizations that forced them to choose a certain structure over others.
According to Birkinshaw (2001), organizational structure can partly be affected by the firm’s external environment. In the views of Gordon and Narayanan (1997), the more certain the environment is, the more centralized hierarchy the firm’s organizational structure may have, with formalized rules and procedures. Organizations that operate with a high degree of environmental uncertainty may decentralize decision making (Birkinshaw, 2001), relying on formal rules and policies, and flatten their hierarchies (Child, 1997).
Organizational structure should be designed, therefore, so as to encourage the willing participation of members of the organization and effective organizational performance.
Statement of the Research Problem

Organizational structure is informative about strategic priorities and the work going on in the organization. The type of organizational structure depends on the nature of the particular organization. The form which the organizational structure takes may be represented periodically by an organizational chart.
