INTRODUCTIONOrganisation behaviour is the study of behaviour and attitude of employees who areemployed under company at the workplace. Also, the study of organisation behaviourincludes analysis of various effects of beliefs and thoughts of employees on the culture andperformance of an organisation. Moreover, every company has its own structure whichmanagement follows and on the basis of particular structure of company, culture is adoptedand followed by every personnel working in a company. The below includes differentstructure and culture followed by two different organisation namely CAPCO and RocketSoftware Inc. including its effects on the performance of business. Furthermore, the reportexplains various effects of different elements on behaviour of personnel and nature of group.Also, the report shows impact of various different leadership styles that have on themotivation of employees working in an organisation. At last, the report is summarised on theimpact of technology that have on the functioning and performance of groups or team in acompany. TASK 11.1 Compare and contrast different organisational structure and cultureOrganisational structure plays a vital role in the success and development of thecompany. Organisational structure is created so that there is a proper flow of work and bringprofit to the company. Company can adopt different kinds of structure which are as follows:Horizontal or flat structure – This kind of structure has fewer or sometimes a singlelayer of management. This simply means that the chain of command or flow ofinformation from top level management to lower is short and controls areimplemented widely. Communication under this structure is clear and effective(Adair, 2006). Matrix structure – This type of structure is generally followed in a project based workin an organisation. The group is formed of individuals with specialised skills such asHR, marketing, or technical skills needed for completion of task. CAPCO follows thisstructure for specific projects which requires specified skills and competencies. Oncethe project completes for which they were appointed, these employees move on toother groups of individuals. Employees here are allowed to freely ask question andsuggest improvements (ARCHIBALD, 2014). 1
Tall hierarchical structure – Such tall structure ensures effective command in anorganisation because of less control in a company. Decision making authority is withtop level management and subordinates follow the guidelines mentioned by upperlevel managers. This structure would not fit with environment of CAPCO becausecompany promotes innovation and entrepreneurial culture. Divisional structure – Company following this structure creates different departmentsand delegate the whole work of a company in various departments for easycompletion of activities. For example, different departments can be formed likemarketing, finance, IT, production, sales etc (Baker and Hart, 2008). In addition to above organisational structure, culture in an organisation relates to differentbelief, ideas, thoughts, opinions, and principles of people employed by a company. Theparticular culture of a company adopts various ways to interact with different people in anorganisation. Company can follow different culture at the workplace which includes thefollowing:Power – It is a type of culture in an organisation in which decision making power lies insingle hand which is a supervisor or manager of all the employees generally it is a toplevel manager who provides guidelines to be followed by everyone. Role – In this type of culture, every person employed in a company has some rolesassigned to be undertaken. Task – Such type of culture is followed generally in project based company whichenables organisation to create a group of individuals to perform a particular assignmentfor short duration. Person – This defines that the every person in a firm is equally important andauthorised to perform their task based on their own skills and competencies (Bauer andErdogan, 2016). Comparison of CAPCO and Rocket Software Inc. structure and culture Structure CAPCOMatrix structure is followedby CAPCO thus developinghighly motivated andauthorised workforce thatcan accomplish their job onthe basis of their skills andRocket Software Inc.A flat structure is adoptedfollowed by RocketSoftware Inc. where there isless layers of management. 2
