Abstract

All organisations need to establish a routine so that the various tasks and functions are carried out effectively. In a small firm, the owner may supervise and control the entire business while a few employees perform a variety of duties. In large organisations, the various functions are carried out by different departments. Each department has a manager who is responsible for arranging and co-ordinating the department’s activities. Figure 2.1 illustrates some of the departments frequently included within a large organisation.
