Kovalenko B.B. , Dolgova A.A.
The article presents the results of an analysis of the notion of "corporate configuration", including: the most important components of the organizational structure (chain of command, the system of distribution of authority, responsibility and accountability); processes that guide the activities of people inside and outside the organization; relationships connecting people both inside and outside the organization (the relationship between parts of the organization and the corporate center; c ratio stakeholders outside the organization, including alliances and cooperatives). The authors emphasize that the content of the structure, processes and relationships individually and tend to a particular organization in a given period of time. The principle of individual approach implemented both in relation to the choice of structures and control processes and corporate relations. Selection of the structure is carried out on the basis of specific goals and objectives that allows the management control processes of the organization, within its competence and conduct timely organizational changes. By controlling the processes of the organization (formal and informal, promoting and impeding), management control of the organization as a whole. A key aspect of the corporate configuration is the organization's ability to integrate not only the knowledge and activities of the reporting units and organizations that are partners in a single value chain. In this regard, it stressed the need to maintain the flexibility of internal and external corporate relations for a timely response to changes in an uncertain external environment.
