By having employees in the correct role, it should increase the formality and narrow the span of control hopefully leading toward a more definitive structure for CMGS.
The second strategy proposed for CGMS is to perform a SWOT analysis on the company. A SWOT analysis is described by Stone (2010) as an evaluation of an organisation’s strengths, weaknesses, threats and opportunities
