In this structure each organizational function has its own division which corresponds to either products or geographies. Each division contains the necessary resources and functions needed to support the product line and geography.

These organizational structures are made of teams working towards a common goal while working on their individual tasks. They are less hierarchical and they have flexible structures that reinforce problem-solving, decision-making and teamwork.
