Organisational structures describe how organisations function: who is in control, the objects and powers of the organisation, and how different parts of an organisation relate to each other. The typically hierarchical arrangement of lines of authority, communications, rights and duties of an organisation. Organisational structure determines how the roles, power and responsibilities are assigned, controlled, and coordinated, and how information flows between the different levels of management.

Your structure as an organisation depends on your mission, objectives and strategy.
In a centralized structure, the top layer of management has most of the decision making power and has tight control over departments and divisions. In a decentralised structure, the decision making power is distributed and the departments and divisions may have different degrees of independence.

Most organisations have a governing document that describes their structure. The contents of a governing document are heavily influenced by the legal form used by the organisation. Companies will have different legal requirements as opposed to voluntary and community organisations.
