If the task been given each department will do their job. Marketing will take control of adverting side; account will be management by the accounts. The job divided according.
Work specialization helps the company to have experience employees to do the given task.

Centralized help the higher department to make a good decision based on the problem. The higher department has the rights and power to take a decision. The top management has the rights and the authority to take and make a good decision.
Functional structure has some weakness too. Such as work specialization, the employees have to do the same job and only specials in a particular filed. By having work specialization and being in the same department, never give chance to try something new or getting new knowledge about the updates. After years of doing the same job the employees will feel bored of it. Work will be bored without any new challenges to face.
Besides this, the other disadvantages is conflict will be pushed around and never be able to solve it.
This is centralized structure where all the decision is taken by the upper department. It will take time to get approval from the upper management. Furthermore lack of communication among the organization. There will be lack of communications because there will not be any chances to communicate among the department.
This structure has focus only one specially area where functional structure is not open to other skills and options. In making decision this structure will be slow because it will take time for the higher department to approval which will take time. And the managers cannot make any decision on their own and cannot response to the customer as fast as possible. All the decision making power is given to the top management.

For my assignment question I have been ask to interview a small local business in my area and come up with a swot analysis for the business.
The small local business which the writer chooses is a hand phone shop. Firstly the writer will explain about the background of the business. The business was established in the year 2003. The location was a small half shop lot. It was shop lot besides with restored and recoveries shop. There are two people who are in charge in the shop. The shop is open 10.00am to 10.00pmdaily include Saturday and Sunday. After two years they have open a other shop in the same area itself.
The challenges that the local business face was having competitor and hand phone shop now days have a lot in every housing area. That was a biggest challenge for the business. There was other deficit like cash and workers to help to ruin the business. Went the shop open the business pick up when they had provided photo taking services, washing the firms and also photostat took place. This was the reason the business pick up. At this location and they treat their customersâ€™ very well, where the customer always turn to them.
This business mainly sell hand phone. For example in the morning order for the phone by the evening the customer can receive the phone. These shops really give fast services to the customer. If the phone not functioning well he customer can go to them for repair.
The small local business strength is giving good and fast services to the customer. Very friendly and know the way to talk and the treat 6the customer very well.
Secondly is the location. These particular areas only have one phone shop. Customers run to them to get top up, Photostat and etc. The particular area customer will run to them to get phone, sell the second phones, and repair phones, getting a new sim card. Customer will go to the nearby place to get things done. The customer prefer nearby places. Because customer feels that in case of repair or any enquires they can go back to the shop which is near by their house.
The weakness of the small local business is the shop very small. Hard to bring in new things or more things because the place is small. Place is limited. Besides this, customers are from the particular housing area only. Not from outside. Only be notice by the passing buyers. Not every day got customer want to buy phone.
Not everyone can afford to get new phones according to the changes of technological. Furthermore phone price not same always depends sometimes the price goes up and down. Not fixed profit according to the situation only. Not a fixed amount of income to the business if sell phones got income if not means the income will be low.
The threats that is small business can effect is the area, small and not recognize by others. The area is insides the Taman area. Customer prefers buying phones in complex like city square, angsana where they meet with the deals as well. Nowadays every corner got phone shop and everywhere got offer and promotions.
Local small business is hard to survive in the industry with full of competition among each other. The small business that I interview had a lot of challenges to face at the beginning. The phone shop has a lot of difficult to face at begin but slowing the business develops and now there are two shop in the same area.
Due to it small local business it doesnâ€™t have any political factors that effect this business. Only the economics factor that influence is inflation. Pricing level of product. Social factor effect such as people lifestyle. Lifestyle such as people now prefers to have different phones. Chances the phones to the latest technological. Went new phones comes people prefers to have different and the latest model of phone.
Small business is normal owned by family business and the capital requirement is low to high depend on the business on how it has developed.
This small local business needs to identity their strengths weakness opportunity and threats in the business to get stronger in this sector too. Small local business has to identity the opportunity and grabs the opportunity to get their business stronger. Whereas as for the threat the business has to identity where the weak points is and always works towards it and try to overcome the problem at comes.
Throughout this assignment I have found and learn a lot of things. After interview this local small business the writer has understand the needs of this small business. It is very important to identity the SWOT of each business.
SWOT analysis helps to understand the strengths weakness opportunity and threats. It is very important for each and every business to understand this.
