am new at this blog but require urgent aid to design an organisational structure for a hazardous and no-hazardous waste management company. i did my attachment at the company which happen to have only one masters degree holder as the environmental manager and one first degree holder as the health and safety manager. the ceo unfortunately had not attained any higher level education so is the rest of the management team. they have therefore tasked me to review their organizational structure to enable them partner with a foreign company. unfortunately i have no in debt knowledge in business management as i only hold a first degree in valuation or appraisal. but this challenge may unfortunately be the yardstick on which the company may decide to employ me.
please kindly help me
best regards

at the simplest level, there should be a purpose behind each & every new position which is created.
you can ask about their business plan, work out the tasks, KPIs and then design.
a structure which works elsewhere may not fit here.
2nd part it is not necassary for managment to be highly educated.. Position Descriptions should be made on "must haves" rather than "good to haves"..

Hello Derry192,
Organisation structuring is purely a function of business models, revenue models and business growth plans. Other factors that come into play are how the jobs need to be designed, reporting relationships, efficiency of work to be built and so on. By jobs I dont mean the JDs, but the work to be done.
You have mentioned that the organisation structuring needs to be done with an objective of attracting foreign tieups. A factor that needs to be considered is that once the organisation structure is designed, it needs to be "manned". Hence you need to have a manpower plan in place too along with all the above.
A better probing on the above and few other aspects will give you an inpyt on how the organisation needs to be structured.
Hope this helps. You can call me in case you need any further inputs.
