"When I started out, I was an eccentric artist with no connections, no business savvy, and like most artists in my industry, I didn't have much affinity for the business side of fashion-just a burning desire to create an effect with my work. Then I was introduced to Hubbard Management Technology and using Hubbard PR and Marketing principles my company grew 500 percent in six years. It is now being a multimillion-dollar company."

How to Design an Optimum Organizational Structure

Most small businesses and professional practices begin with a few people who know all or many aspects of the business and the functions are handled according to who is available or most familiar or as needed. The distinction between duties, responsibilities and authorities are often not clear-cut. An organization run in this manner can never expand beyond a handful of employees. The owner of this type of organization is usually overworked and spends his time putting out fires instead of planning for expansion or forward progress.

This program covers the functions that must be present in any organization, how the functions interact and affect each other, and how things should flow through an organization. It teaches the tools needed to design an organization and correctly sequence the basic organizational functions. It covers basic study skills, business ethics, organizational design knowledge and tools.

A faculty-supervised Final Practical Application requires the student to apply the knowledge and skills learned to design an organizational structure and implementation plan for a business or organization.

This program is recommended for business owners, professionals, executives, managers and office managers.
