Moorhead and R.W.Griffin – “An organization is a group of people working together to attain common goals”.
Harold Koontz & Heinz Weihrich – “A formalize intentional structure of roles or positions.”
W.J.Duncan – “Organizations are collections of interacting and inter related human and non-human resources working toward a common goal or set of goals within the framework of structured relationships”.
