The writer choose the FUNCTIONAL STRUCTURE for the Jerald's clothes and shoes company, because it consist of departmental groups and it is identified by specialty, such as marketing manager, design manager, human resources, accounting manager and head by owner. OWNER is an individual who owns and operate of a small or big company, but before to become a owner of a company, need to study everything about the business management. Like me as an owner of a small company, to become more strength the company and to make the workers will more like you as a president or owner, need the people skills and good communication, because it will also be beneficial. And wide variety of personalities will be encountered on a daily basis. That's why the owner, like me need to become friendly and good to his staff and buyers.

The owner will be need MARKETING MANAGER, to responsible for developing and overseeing the marketing strategy for our organization. Because activities are geared toward increasing sales and making sure that the sufficient quantities of our service and products are available to meet demand. Its typically oversee the individuals who manage specific functions within the marketing department, such as advertising, sales, and public relations.

The ideal resolution will keep our company's expenditures on track while meeting contractual obligations and satisfying the customers.

This organization we use for our company is very important, because each of my staff and managers are need in my company and if they are not there, the company will slowly going down or will be close and shut down.

Divisional Structure

Actually this structure can be seen as on type of functional structure, or as a separate organizational structure. Which are often broken down into three types, the 1.Market Divisional Structure is organized according to various markets that operates in business/corporate sales division. 2. Product Divisional Structure is grouped in such a way that the employees who are involved making a specific product are grouped together into a one division and it will divide the company into product A, B, C etc, and each of division will have the own hierarchy. 3. Geographic Divisional Structure is grouped in such a way that the employees located into one geographic locations which are grouped together to make one division.

Entrepreneurial Structure

This structure was often mirror in the attitudes and vies of their senior managers, while the approach is one of the identifying business opportunities and being willing to take the risks. The creativity will be a key element and it will be encouraged, however, the approach may be more evident in a new business, particularly where there is an owner manager. Element decision-making will be relatively swift and will usually involve relatively of few people. Although this approach is often spectacularly successful, sometimes cannot be maintained as the business grows larger. Perhaps, closest approach could be the input or output analysis of the productive system, therefore it does not take into account of typology or the characteristics of the enterprises which make up of each production sector.

Matrix Structure

In this structure it is an organizational design that groups employees by the both product and function. Each of functional workers usually reports to the functional heads, but does not normally work directly under of their supervision. However, instead the worker is controlled by the membership of certain project and each of functional workers was usually work under supervision of a project manager, and each of workers has two superiors, who jointly ensure the progress of project. The functional head may be more interested in developing the most exciting technologies or products, where the project manager may more concerned with keeping deadlines and controlling product costs. Therefore, when the work is accomplished, the project of the team may get dissolve and workers from the different functional areas may get reassigned to the other tasks and projects.
