Task-based structure

Task-based structure is a structure in which a group of people required to accomplish a given task are brought together based on their skills rather than on their places in the organizational hierarchy.

As Example:

- A team that is assembled to perform surgery. A group of medical specialists and physicians comes together to accomplish the task, regardless of their levels within the structure of the hospital.

Task based organizations work well for companies that operate in highly dynamic business environment like Intel.
