There are five popular organizational structures, according to Mintzberg. 1. Simple structure (entrepreneurial organization).This type of organization consists of a few managers/executives and multiple subordinates. 2. Machine bureaucracy.Workers operate as parts of a machine. Each department is responsible for its own tasks, and decision-making is centralized. 3. Professional bureaucracy.Each professional works independently, without centralization, on tasks that match their specific skillset. 4. Divisional (diversified) form.Diverse work is delegated among divisions. Each division focuses on its own activities and functions. 5. Adhocracy.There is no formal structure; rather, highly qualified employees form teams to complete tasks and adjust to any industry changes.
Mintzberg added that there should be a maximum of these six basic parts of any organization. 1. Strategic apex(includes senior management) 2. Middle line(links strategic apex to operating core) 3. Operating core(handles operational processes) 4. Technostructure(includes analysists of various sorts) 5. Support staff(supports and offers services to the organization) 6. Ideology(includes company's norms and values)

Figurehead.A figurehead is responsible for social, ceremonial and legal matters. They represent their company in a professional manner. 2. Leader.All managers must be leaders, communicating with, inspiring and coaching their team. Workers should be able to look to their manager for support and guidance. 3. Liaison.Liaisons are responsible for networking outside of their company and relaying necessary information. 4. Monitor.A monitor seeks information within and outside of their company to assess their company's operations and identify issues that need to be approached or changes that need to be made. 5.
