Achieving Harmony between Line and Staff
 
 
The effectiveness of line people depends to a large extent on how they make use of staff. Staff people are needed in the organizations because line people may not able to solve the problems which require specialized knowledge. For making proper use of staff, following points are important:
 
Staff people should be involved right from the initial stages of planning of an activity rather than when the problem becomes critical. When they are involved at the level of planning, many of the problems may not arise.
 
In order to make proper use of staff, they should not be kept busy in unimportant work because it does not serve any meaningful purpose. Instead, they should be assigned critical work in the area of their specialty.
 
There should be encouragement and education to line people as to how to make maximum use of staff effectively. Line people can not make use of staff unless they know what a specialist can do for them. At the same time, staff people also have a responsibility to let line people know how they can contribute for the better performance of line activities. 

If line people take some actions directly affecting staff activities without consulting staff people, they should be informed immediately about such actions. The information will help in removing misunderstandings, if any, created in the minds of staff people.
