(A) A divisional structure by customer segment.
(B) A matrix structure that leaves the current divisions intact and overlays it with centralised functions for procurement, training methods, finance, HR, and marketing.
(C) A functional structure – e.g. procurement, gym operations, training methods, HR, finance, marketing – that gets rid of the gym directors
(D) None of the above
An alternative to the current divisional structure by gym location is a functional structure. A Functional by specialisation organisation structure is the one in which the main organisation is divided into other smaller groups based on one specialised functional area. In this case, a functional structure for the gym will have procurement, gym operations, training methods, HR, finance, marketing – that gets rid of the gym directors.
