1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
The understanding of the organization is important to the personnel management in relation to an organizational structure. Organization can be seen as a process of coordinating individual efforts to achieve a set goal. similarly, an organization is a consciously coordinated social entity with a relatively identifiable boundary that functions on a relatively continues basis to accomplish a goals.
Organization is not an end in itself, but a means to business performance and business result. organization is an indispensable means; and the wrong structure will seriously mar business performance. still the starting point of any analysis of organization can not be a discussion of structure. it is this view by Druker (1999) that led the researcher in finding out how organization structure can affect the workers performance in an organization.
The basic unit of any organization not clear incomplete sentence organization taken at its simplest level, consist of job designed and organizational design. Job remove is a collection of tasks assigned to a position in an organization structure. Job design refers to the process by which managers specify the contents, methods and relationship or jobs to satisfy both individual and organizational requirements. On the other hand, organizational design is the overall organizational structure. This aim at creating a new structure of tasks, authority and relationship that will channel the behavior of individuals and groups towards improved quality performance.
Kreither (1999) defined an organization as a cooperative social system involving the coordinated efforts of two or more people pursuing a shared purpose” in other words, organization emerge whenever people gather and formally agree to combine their effort for a common purpose. Basic in the concept of organization is the idea that organization is made up of persons who share common goals by communication and are willing to contribute their efforts and actions with the purpose of accomplishing a common objectives. Organization is consciously coordinated which imply management by Robbins (1987;3). Organization as a social entity means; that the unit is composed of people or group of people who interact with each other. The interaction pattern that people follow do not just emerge, rather they are premeditated. Therefore, because organization is the process by which manager’s specify the contents, method and relationship of jobs to satisfy both individual and organizational requirements. on the other hand, organization is the overall organizational structure. this aim at creating a new structure of tasks, authority and relationship that will channel the behavior of individuals and groups towards improve quality performance.

Organization, is consciously coordinated which imply management by Robbins (1987) organization as a social entity means that the units is composed of people or groups of people who interact with each other. The interaction pattern that people follow do not just emerge, rather they are premeditated. Therefore, because organization is a social entity, the interaction pattern of the member must be balance and harmonized to minimize redundancy, yet ensure that critical tasks are being completed.
McFarland (1994), said that organizational structure “ are pattern of relationships among people and positions they occupied in an organization” structure consist of prescribed organizational positions and their accompanying task responsibilities established specified and intended relationship among occupants of such position.
Sound organizational structure involves dividing activities into departments, divisions, units and sub – units , defining relationship, between the heads and members that make up the units. The structure of an organization stipulates how tasks are to be allocated, who reports to who and the formal coordinating mechanism and interaction pattern that will be followed. Although the nature of the structure varies from one organization to another. we have four types of organizational structure viz line organizational structure which consist of direct vertical relationship connecting the position at each level with those at the top and below.
Functional organizational structure permits a specialist in a given area to enforce his directive within the limit and clearly defined scope of authority.
Line and staff organizational structure consist of addition of functional specialist to line organization.
Staff organizational structure emerges to assist, help and support the line organization to enable the line to perform well.
