Hi Mahmud,

1. Line function are basically the teams that exist primarily for the attainment of Org. objectives and Support functions are the teams that support the Line teams for the attainment of Org. objectives.

Hence Line & Staff funcion exists in ALL organisations.

2. Line function are basically the teams that exist primarily for the attainment of Org. objectives, for eg.. Software teams in an IT Org.

3. Respective managers have primariry rights on leave, PA, Displinary action of subordinates whereas HR Manager needs to ensure that process and policy framed by an org are followed and has always need to support Line Managers for any guidance & advice.

4. Job Decoding - My fair idea on Job decoding is that "the process of translating job related instrutions or information into codewords of a given technical language or code".

Career Planning - Planning a long term career path for an individual in an org by Manager / Management, especially for top performers.

Succession Planning - Training or preparing individuals to be promoted to the higher levels, especially in top level management.

Career Planning focusses on individuals as a retention strategy and Succession planning focusses on Positions to be occupied in future.

5. Attaching two documents on PA and this is the format shared by Anshu Goyal in CiteHR. You can also browse for more formats in CiteHR.

Do let me know whether this info suffices you.

Thanks & Regards,
