Organisation Structures And Their Contribution To Leaders’ And Followers’ Performances In Business Enterprises In Papua New Guinea
An appropriate organisation structure that fits to the strategy enables the leaders and followers in enhancing their
performances and thereby improving organisational performance. Studies are rear to find in the area of contribution of
organisation structure to leaders and followers performance. Therefore, the present study is expected to contribute towards
plugging this gap. Data used for this study were collected from primary and secondary sources. A questionnaire was
developed and administered together with interviews conducted. The 'T' test (t-value) and co- efficient of correlation (r -
value) were employed in this study. This paper presents a comparative analysis of impact of organisational structure on
leaders and followers performance using three factors viz., bureaucratic structure based, organic structure based and hybrid
structure based and performance and satisfaction levels of followers and leaders. Data analysis indicates that the type of
organisation structure impacts employee performance in terms of decision-making and implementation; control the process
of operations implementation and building relationships and ultimately achievement of organisational goals. The analysis
indicates that organic structure results in positive and high employee performance compared to the remaining two types of
organisation structures. Therefore, it is suggested that business organisations should consider structuring their organisations
around the characteristics of organic structure, unless otherwise the business environment is recessionary.
