Abstract:
Every organisation has a unique culture which is created through years of leadership, along with individuals who share common values and work to achieve organisational goals. Interaction and coordination among individuals and different groups too influence the work culture, which in turn affects the projects undertaken by the organisation. Projects also affects the behaviour and interests of the group and individuals and vice versa. Apt project structure in an organisational structure is a key factor for organisational success. Quick Business Solutions, a software company, is facing a similar problem in structuring its project structure. This case study deals in general about project organisation structure and integration; and in particular the kinds of structures applicable to projects. Finally, the case study poses the following questions – Does a change in project structure have any impact on organisation structure? If yes, then how efficiently should a project manager build the project structure.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To understand the relationship between organisation structure and project structure
  • To highlight the roles and responsibilities of a project manager
  • To understand the project organisation structure of Quick Business Solutions.
