Individuals and groups operate within a framework of larger groups described as organizations. The way of employees grouping, the relationships established between them represent the organization’s structure. There are different types of structure, each of them with advantages and disadvantages, but the general trend is to change those structures in order to better adaptation to a changing environment and to improve the organization performance. The necessity of change rises when the organizations are faced with some specific problems like failure in achievement of planned objectives, slower decision process and poor decision quality, decreasing of employees’ moral, managers fatigue appearance, increasing of operations and total costs. The paper presents a way of optimizing the organizations structure by resizing the span of control and the number of management levels.
Keywords: organizational structure, span of control, management level
