Co-ordination of management activities — Mapping organisational structure to the decision structure
The GRAI Grid is used for the presentation of co-ordination in a virtual enterprise. A set of examples are presented which show how the organisational structure and decisional structure interrelate, making it possible to evaluate the two structures in conjunction. The technique can be used to design organisations which take into account the individual as well as organisational objectives of the individual organisational actor thus leading to a better management structure.
