Work Organization

Interacting work systems (2.2) acting to produce a specific overall outcome.

  • Note 1 to entry: The process of work organization includes coherent actions in relation to establishing the form and mode of organization to be adopted (e.g. individual or collective work, teams working separately or interdependently, etc.). It is also necessary to define and allocate resources and determine the means and channels of communication. All these actions lead to the definition and assignment of prescribed tasks to the operators involved.
