Thereare many structural systems that can be put in place by organizationsin averting the risks of bureaucracy.

This is as an important form of a communicationsystem that integrates all employees in the daily operations of theorganization. A business organization prevents the development ofbureaucracy if it has in place an effective structural approach thatis geared at transferring and accessing of ideas, information anddecisions among all its workers.
Everybusiness organization has its goals on staying relevant andcompetitive in a business environment. For this to happen, it isimportant for businesses to move away from hoarding importantinformation by developing effective systems of information sharing.This strategy is important as it guarantees a more viable strategy ofmanaging intellectual capital. It is important to understand that ifmanaged well, intellectual capital supersedes financial resources orphysical management processes. However, an organization will beforced to learn and develop new ways through which information can beachieved, coded and eventually be disseminated to the rightdepartments. This business competency can only be adopted if abusiness has regular and effective training and development programs.
Inaddition, organizations seeking to effectively manage human knowledgeas a resource should have working procedures or processes installedfor that very purpose. These processes or procedures will help increating, harnessing and protecting important business knowledgeamong its people. More importantly is that an organization shoulddevelop strategies that ensure such processes are clearly articulatedand communicated among the employees through programs or initiatives.However, for this business strategy to be fully effective there is aneed of creating an enabling environment that will freely allowemployees to discover and share information. Bureaucracy will becompletely eliminated by planning and building an environment whereskills and competencies are managed within the organization.
An organization is assumed to be in a state of decline when it isfacing such major challenges such as its decrease in quality andsignificance to its members or its target consumers. Typically thereare two major options for any organization that enters into a stateof decline or decay. The first main option is exiting from its corefunctions in the market and completely seizing to operate. The otheroption that an organization may employ is seeking to improve itsservices or quality through communications with the right partnersfor the organization to survive. In addition, an organization mayreceive favorable feedback or even criticism that may prevent it fromexiting its operations. However, if an organization receivesoverwhelming criticism by communicating its condition, there aregreater chances of exiting from operations.
Howeverit is important to note that a company’s loyalty in the marketenvironment may affect its cost-benefit analysis. For instance acompany that has positive brand loyalty by overwhelming section ofits consumers can encourage the organization to try and improve.Conversely, a company facing poor brand reception and loyalty fromthe market may be encouraged to exit from play. In this case,consumer loyalty plays a big role in determining the direction thatany company takes when facing decline challenges. The main reason whythis happens is because their voices are normally heard and theyshape the decisions that an organization embraces in the long run.
