what is Adhocracy?
Ken Garrett says
A system of flexible and informal organization and management in place of rigid bureaucracy. An ‘ad hoc’ solution is one that is made u pat the time to deal with a situation.
Understand 6 out of 13 words the professor wrote on the slides, emmm not bad…hahaha.
Professional what? machine what?
got it , bureaucracy….
hi there could anyone advise as per section by section online testing for F1 rather than attempting the mock and going through the questions which i have gone through?
if there is any at all that can advise to a site or something similar to open tuition?
My English is too poor to understand what the teachers said hahaha
Very useful. Thank you!
ya its very easy to understand the topic
Very good lecture! Thank you for your work
I enjoyed this lecture.
Thank you for giving me knowledge in easy way
Thank you! Well explained!
Mintzberg’s structure was wonderfully explained. Until I saw this lecture, I couldn’t distinguish between the “techno-structure” and “support staff”. But with the description of “machine bureaucracy”, “professional bureaucracy” and “entrepreneur” everything fell into place. Thanks!
this lectures are on the syllabus of this dec 2015 exam
hi sir, am unable to watch the videos ,pls help
Great lecture! However, I would like to ask about something. Why is HR assigned to both support staff and technostructure? Does it have a double nature? Thank you for the clarification.
From my understanding the technostructure isn’t a department but basically the rules which govern the business operations. HR would have a set of rules for hiring employees etc. So it forms part of the technostructure or ethics in an organisation. Think of it like the human body i guess. Brains and heart form the strategic appex, arms and legs etc form the support staff, spine is the middle line, fingers and toes are the operating core. All of these are physical things. But things like emotion would be technostructure. Emotions govern our actions. But emotions arent physical things. (i hope this makes sense and my logic is correct)..
Please give feedback
My logic may have been off….
Hope this helps instead…
Wow I like that explanation not bad ..good job
hi sir, how can i download the lecture video? easy for me to learn without using internet,
That’s a good idea so i can study while on my lunch hour or breaks between work.
Ken Garrett says
Lectures cannot be downloaded.
download ‘realplayer’ and it will allow you to download any video from the internet.

hi, this session was helpful, its short, brief and straight to the point, thanks
Really nice. could you please elaborate about minzberg’s structure???
Thanks so much for this. Could you please explain more on boundaryless structure? Thanks
organisations which have certain functions in their environment. For example if you do not carry out the all production process, that is different components made by different orgs.
