In your initial post, reflect upon a specific organizational management structure in a specific organization, and then analyze the way project management fits into that structure. If possible, use an organization that you are familiar with through your own employment. If that is not a good fit for you, research an organization’s management structure and use the researched organization for your analysis. Address the following:
· Define the key aspects of the organizational structure. How does it operate? How does project management impact the overall organization?
· How does that organizational structure impact the company’s management of projects?
· Provide specific examples from your experience or from your research to support your points.
