As you advance in your development as a project manager, carefully integrating the roles and responsibilities of everyone involved with the projects will effectively ensure that everyone in the project has a clear understanding of his or her duties.
In this article, I will examine some organisational structures and project interfaces and document the roles, responsibilities and reporting relationships of the people working on the project.
As a project manager, you will want to ensure that everyone working on your project is assigned appropriate duties. In order to ensure this, you need to clearly understand the influences of organisational cultures and styles on the projects you manage and document the roles, responsibilities, and relationships among each individual in the organisation.

Organisational policies and procedures influence the project the company undertakes. For example, the organisational procedures will determine how to implement new strategies and if the work environs will be formal or informal.
Values, beliefs and expectations of an organisation have a major impact on the organisational culture. For example, the organisation’s strategic decision making choices, and preferences will vary, based on it’s values and beliefs.
#3 Management style
The management style of the organisation is another factor that can affect the organisational culture. For example, certain factors, such as managers following a coaching style of management or controlling style of management, the employees being allowed to give feedback, and the implementation of their feedback, are all dependent upon the different styles followed by the management.
#4 Work environment
Work ethics followed by the organisation also constitute the organisational culture. For example, some organisations may allow employees to work anytime from 7 am to 7 pm, and some others may want them to work strictly from 8 am to 5 pm and work late nights if their workload is high.
Understanding Organisation’s Culture Influence On Projects
In my previous article, I talked about all that you need to know about organisational culture and styles on projects. I. In this article, I want to talk about all that you need to know about the Organisation’s Culture and styles for projects. Follow me as we are going to look at that together in this article.
Several aspects of projects are influenced by the organisational culture. Some of these include:
#1 Project policies and procedures
The project policies and procedures should reflect the Organisation’s Culture, policies, and procedures.
#2 Project selections
The criteria for the selection of projects are determined by the organisational culture. For example, a competitive, ambitious, and assertive organisation will select a project with high risks while a highly rigid and authoritarian organisation may not take a project with high risks.
#3 Project management style
A project manager should adapt to the management style of an organisation. For example, a project manager cannot follow a permissive management style in an autocratic organisation where all decisions are made unilaterally.
#4 Team performance assessment
A project manager should adhere to a company’s policies when assessing the performance of a team. For example, an employee should not be promoted to the next level unless he or she meets all the standards set by the organisation.
