Strategy is stressed over picking the nature, space and extent of an organizations works out (essentially, what it looks like, its characteristics, the zones it covers and the heading it is going in), and the way wherein its thriving will be surveyed. The case of activities in strategy rises up out of the getting, portion and obligation of a ton of benefits and capacities by the organization, in a ground-breaking match with the troubles of its condition, and from the administration of the system of relationship with and between partners. Essential orchestrating is imperative to ensure that your organization follows the best course towards its vital. Animal affirmation social requests are blockaded with a verifiably wide and complex course of action of solicitations, and can without a doubt get diminished to responsive ‘putting out flames’ organizations. This unending prevents progress towards mission. Strategy plan is a basic limit of NGO the executives (Roshina, 2020).
A well-focussed and described strategy is essential to ensure perfect headway towards urgent vision is cultivated – also as a course guide (or sea chart) is required, to ensure the most prompt course is taken among home and objective. Similarly pivotal are convincing ways to deal with screen, review and realign strategy in the brisk changing animal protection condition. Social goals make it dynamically difficult to choose needs, set quantifiable targets and survey execution. This doesn’t mean it is unimaginable; just that it is troublesome (or routinely typical. Also, there is a checked affinity for the ‘mission headed’ to dependably grow their fixation and remarkable jobs that needs to be done. These segments make it significantly progressively basic to have a well-described strategy. Strategy definition is a crucial limit of NGO the board. In any case, key administration should not be confounded.
It is fundamentally making and impelling the work and stresses of the organization by and large, inside the necessities and solicitations of its progressively broad condition. It is consistently negligible more than ‘enlightened trustworthiness’.the organization needs to continue improving the advancement with the dynamic changes dependent on environment. The management must be additionally be centred around their perspectives on how goals of organization are planned and accomplished. Wellbeing and preparing must be given through the employee development to the two labourers and administrators. A solid target on employee development will certainly get advancement which will be adjusted in the organization. The developments will be useful in usage of new administrations and items which help to build profitability. The targets help in keeping employees spurred that will be gainful to boost generation and benefits for organization. Coming up next are routes through which targets can become struggle in organization (unaids.org, 2020).

To begin with, the chapter “The Organizational Context: Strategy, Structure and Culture” covered several topics and I want to discuss about few important topics. Firstly, the Strategic management plays a vital role, “Strategic Management is the science of formulating, implementing and evaluating cross-functional decisions that enable an organization to achieve its objectives”. It mainly consists of few elements such as:
- Developing Vision statements and mission statements
- Formulating, implementing and evaluating
- Making cross-functional decisions
- Achieving objectives
Later I consider TOWS matrix, as “It is a useful way to see the links between projects and an organizations strategic choices”. The acronym for TOWS is” Threats-opportunities, weakness-strengths”. Besides Managing stakeholders is equally important irrespective to the organizational structure. The three types of organizational structures are:
- Functional organizations
- Project organizations
- Matrix organizations
The above-mentioned organizational structure have its own pros’, con’s, and PMO (Project Management office) will plan accordingly. “PMO is defined as a centralized unit within an organization or department that oversees or improves the management of projects. There are three forms of PMO’s which depends on the degree control which should be supportive, controlling and Directive.
Finally, Organization culture acts a key variable for making the project successful. So, organizational culture and project management should be considered together. There are few aspects to be considered by the project manager such as:
- Department interaction
- Employee commitment to goals
- Project Planning and
- Performance evaluation
After going through the topics mentioned in this chapter, I believe strategic management acts as a vital ingredient for meeting projects end goal. It mainly deals with other possibilities or changes in line of activity etc. Project is nothing but implementing that strategy, so i felt strategic management as an initial step. Later after considering the hierarchy graph, an organization structure helped to understand the flow of work or decisions, responsibilities etc. During an implementation stage, there will be certain amount of loss in an efficiency and teamwork plays a vital role. In this modern era, majority of multinational companies deal with employees from entire world and in such cases organization behavior is so important.
So, by considering these factors any organization can adapt or change their way of doing actions to achieve better results irrespective to their line of activity.
