There are fivemain features that a good structure has:1.Clear line of Authority.2.Proper delegation of work.3.Fewer managerial levels.4.Proper emphasis on staff.5.Unambiguous and Flexible.Clear line of Authority:Structure adopted can be in any form, but there should notbe any ambiguity in the structure. Running from higher level to lower level theremust be clear line of authority. Implies that what is to be achieved from theorganisation should be very clear and what official relations are to maintained bythem. Frictions and inefficiencies occur when there is unambiguity in clarifyinglines of authority. (Hong and Lu, 2016.)Proper delegation of work:When the authority is divided properly it would beeffectively explained as the concept of ultimate authority. It is the authorization ofpowers to different managerial persons in order to make decisions for theorganisation.Fewer managerial levels:As far as possible it should be taken care that there areless managerial levels in the organisation. If there is longer line of communication,it would create problem in communication process. Delay in communication wouldlead to, delay in implementation of decision making process.
