Organizations achieve objectives by using physical and human resources.

Organizing
 
 
Organizations achieve objectives by using physical and human resources. When people work in groups, everyone in the group should know what he/she is expected to achieve and with what resources. In other words, organizing involves establishing authority - responsibility relationships among people working in groups and creating a structural framework. Thus, the manager’s task in organizing aims at creating a structure that facilitates the achievement of goals. Organizing therefore involves:
 
 
 
1. determination of activities required to achieve goals;
 
2. grouping of these activities into departments;
 
3. assignment of such groups of activities to a manager;
 
4. delegation of authority to carry them out; and
 
5. provision for coordination horizontally and vertically in the organization.

The managerial function of organizing involves designing the structure and establishing functional and operational relationships. The resulting structure varies with the task. A large organization with huge market needs a different structure compared to a small organization. Similarly, structure of an organization operating in a stable environment may be different from the one operating in a dynamic environment.
