Is Coordination the Fundamental Principle of Every Organization

After the administrative policies have been formulated by the top level executives the onus of implementing them lies on employees from higher to lower level. These employees are divided among various departments among whom the work has been divided and distributed. This can be equated to several parts of a machine or several organs of a human body. If only one part or organ stops functioning the whole machine or body will stop working. Same goes with an organization. Inefficiency in one department can cause the downfall of the whole organization.

So coordination become very important between departments, between high level and low level employees, between policy formulators and policy implementers. No matter how strong and effective the policies are if coordination is missing, the ultimate objective will fail. For achieving coordination it is important to have control by putting responsible authorities in key positions. Effective coordination can remove lethargic work culture and also solve the problem of red tapism.

In large organizations where the number of employees and departments are many, coordination becomes the most important single factor as the complexities involved are many.

Not only in organization but also in Public Administration, coordination become important to pursue primary and secondary health care in an integrated manner giving due weightage to non medical factors like sanitation and therefore the work spreads across several ministries and State Governments. So coordination between them is necessary to meet the overall objective.
