Refer to Scenario 4. Why is a divisional structure by country unlikely to be appropriate for this organisation?

(A) Because each country requires its own customised sales approach

(B) Because local product needs across different countries don’t require any product adaptation, and efficiency is important to the business strategy

(C) Because the different country Business Units would be difficult to coordinate

(D) Because a matrix structure would be better

Explanation

A divisional structure by country is unlikely to be appropriate for this organisation because the product doesn’t require any form of adaptation based on the needs of local customers across different countries.
Also, if the efficiency of the organisation is of critical importance then a divisional structure by country is not appropriate.
