CHAPTER 2: ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE & DESIGN
Organizational structure refers to the way that an organization arranges people and jobs so that its work can be performed and its goals can be met. When a work group is very small and face-to-face communication is frequent, formal structure may be unnecessary, but in a larger organization decisions have to be made about the delegation of various tasks. Thus, procedures are established that assign responsibilities for various functions. It is these decisions that determine the organizational structure.
In an organization of any size or complexity, employees’ responsibilities typically are defined by what they do, who they report to, and for managers, who reports to them. Over time these definitions are assigned to positions in the organization rather than to specific individuals. The best organizational structure for any organization depends on many factors including the work it does; its size in terms of employees, revenue, and the geographic dispersion of its facilities; and the range of its businesses. PTV’s organization structure is more Mechanistic in nature.
PTV have clear, well-defined, centralized, vertical hierarchies of command, authority, and control. Efficiency and predictability are emphasized through specialization, standardization, and formalization. This results in rigidly defined jobs, technologies, and processes. This suggests that organizational structures, processes, and roles are like a machine in which each part of the organization does what it is designed to do, but little else. PTV’s justify for having mechanistic structure because they believe their abilities to achieve the purpose the purpose of their existence can be achieved more efficiently and effectively.
PTV utilizes to increase efficiency when tasks and technologies are relatively stable. The vice-president of PTV employee such production processes and techniques that minimize waste and maximize outputs for a given quantity of inputs. The goal of PTV is ‘Quality and Efficiency. ’ PTV’s structure is highly formalized, which simply means that nearly all processes and procedures have been administratively authorized. The organization considers processes and procedures out-side these established protocols as variances that must be brought under control.
Such formalization is driven by efficiency; reduction in variance increases predictability, and increases in predictability allow for improvements in efficiency. Environmental and technological stability allow work to be clearly defined and differentiated. The work of the PTV is divided into specific, precise tasks. Created from one or more such specific tasks, specialized job positions rigidly define skills needed, task methodology and procedures to be used, and specific responsibilities and authority.
In effect, lower-level managers and other employees simply follow procedures, and while this may have the side effect of stifling creativity, it also increases efficiency of established processes. In stable environments, however, stifling creativity may be worth the improvements in efficiency. Specialization carries throughout this organization. Positions are grouped together into specialized work units and, ultimately, into specialized functional departments such as production, marketing, or finance.
Each organizational unit has clear and specific responsibilities and objectives. Communication is primarily vertical, with more emphasis on down-ward directives than on upward communication. Thus, such matters as goals, strategies, policies, and procedures are determined by top-level management and communicated downward as instructions and decisions to be implemented. Upward communication usually involves transmittal of reports and other information for management to consider, usually at the request of management. Coordination is maintained through the chain of command.
However, employees sometimes feel that specialized tasks are repetitive and can sometimes be boring and monotonous, and they need to break this monotony. Personnel selection, assignment, and promotion are based on the possession of skills required for specific tasks. Other people, like interchangeable parts of a machine, can replace people in a position.

All Organizations have their own culture. Some give more attention n some not. Somebody said that: “The magic behind every outstanding performance is always found in the smallest of details. ” Many people downplay small details, dismissing them as minutia-the “small stuff,” that we’re encouraged to ignore. But, in fact, our whole environment is simply an accumulation of tiny details. Some jobs need people who can handle both the small and large parts of a task. Such individuals won’t overlook what needs to be done and can be depended on to do each task accurately and completely.
PTV is such a corporation where the work or the task of the project is the main priority. They are just interested in the work, they have no concern how they perform it . they don’t interrupt during the process of work. They just asked for desired work on the day it is required. Other factors or things are not much valued. 3. 3 PEOPLE ORIENTED In PTV, the jobs and roles of every employee are well-defined. They all are cleared about there status accurately. They are told how to deal with people, paying attention to all aspects, however small, of a given task.
They are trained to use there time in an efficient manner. They should make more from the given time.

PTV is planning to launch its channels abroad like PTV –Global for the projection of Pakistan in other countries. PTV will also get substantial business of commercial advertisement and its due share from the cable operators of that particular country. DTH is yet another venue open to PTV which can be materialized to generate more revenue. PTV is planning to launch an independent sports channel which will be liked by the viewers and will generate more revenue. PTV is trying to project state policies, development schemes, politico-economic events and socio-cultural activities.
Through proper planning PTV can raise the general level of common sense of the masses and inculcate them a great awareness of their own history and heritage. 4. 2 GOALS & OBJECTIVES Recognizing that in a country like Pakistan where literacy is low, electronic media communication could be best made through Regional Language Programmes, Regional languages, which instantly touch the vernacular and indigenous instincts of every individual, regional language programmes have always been the high point in PTV’s programme mix, soon after the inception of Pakistan Television.
Ever since, there has been gradual but constant progress towards their betterment and improvement. Starting with segments in Punjabi and later Sindhi, PTV Added programme segments in Siraiki, Pushto, Hindko, Balochi and Brahvi as Peshawar and Quetta Centre came on air in 1974. PTV has always been reached out to viewers all over the country and with Programmes which address their concernsand aspirations and allocated sizable chunk of its transmission time to Regional Language programmes. 4. 3 THE CHRONOLOGY FOR REGIONAL CHANNELS ) PTV NATIONAL In keeping with the spirit of Regional Language Programmes and rapid developments in the electronic media sector, the Government desired that PTV set up a Channel exclusively catering only to regional languages of the country and in compliance, PTV National was launched by the Prime Minister on 12th June, 2003 allocating equal time to the four Provinces. Although most of the programmes initially were often old repeats, the channel evoked a very positive response. b) FOUR INDEPENDENT CHANNELS
Encouraged by this development and recognizing that messages of cohesion and tolerance were necessitated by the circumstances and best communicated in one’s own language, the Government and PTV Authorities directed that four individual Channels be set up in the Provincial Languages, so that these channels provide an excellent platform to highlight the diversity and richness of cultures and heritage abounding the Pakistani landscape. It would also help establishing a variegated identity of the nation on the global canvas with electronic signals transcending all borders. c) PTV BOLAN
The first of the four channels styled as “BOLAN” for Balochistan was launched by the Prime Minister on the independence Day the 14th August, 2005, which has also been instrumental in blunting the propaganda and disinformation. This has added another positive dimension to the regional language Channels. 4. 4 PREPAREDNESS PTV has made extensive preparations both technical and programming for the launching of three new Regional Channels i. e. PTV Mehran (Sindh), PTV-Abaseen (NWFP), PTV Punjnad (Punjab). Regional Language Programming started initially with half hour and increased to one hour.
Now being extended with the inception of new channels to eight hours with twice repeat. Quantum of news bulletins have also been increased from five minutes to ten minutes and thrice a day. Regional Language programmes are telecast with Urdu subtitling. Efforts are underway for dubbing. Regional Languages channels are depending on the software produced by the Centres. CHAPTER 5: MOTIVATION TECHNIQUES & TOOLS As we know PTV is highly aware of how to motivate its employees in the best way. This can be judged by the enthusiasm and good spirit that people show in performing their jobs.
There is a well-devised system that PTV follows for the purpose of motivation. It includes both financial and non-financial rewards along with the major Motivators and Dissatisfies. The company recognizes the importance of making people drive towards their goals and the basic step towards this is made through recognizing the value of importance that the company gives to its employees. PTV has a set of financial rewards, medical, dental, vision and life insurance, retirement plan, paid vacation days, family and work life balance benefits and profit sharing plan, Annual bonus opportunities, company cars etc.
Other ways in which employees are motivated are: Employee Consultation for: * Everyday residence issues (remodeling, repairs, house-sitting, etc. ). * Legal matters. * Financial issues * Education and schooling. * Parent and child care. * Resources for seniors and eldercare issues * Emergency dependent-care reimbursement. * Adoption assistance. Employees are safe in knowing that they will be rewarded for any exceptional work. This reward is not only monetary. It is accompanied by the employee being given recognition and greater empowerment.
Employees are given a very beautiful and healthy work environment. Special attention is given to make the physical environment most productive. This is why PTV offices are considered to be the most well decorated and organized. As we know PTV has a desire to promote the high achievers from within the company. Positions are given on merit and are transparent and fair in nature. There is no special treatment. Therefore each employee knows that he can aim for the top and actually get there.
This has proved to be a great source of motivation for the employees of PTV. CHAPTER 6: CONTROL MECHANISMS Control mechanisms are important to every organization. Without them, it would be difficult to determine whether or not the planning, organizing and leading functions of management are effective and productive for the company. Although some mechanisms are used widely throughout many organizations and companies, some mechanisms are tailored to fit a specific organization. Management must determine the most appropriate control mechanisms for their company.
PTV keep track of every process with different types of spreadsheets, reports, and statements which either proves the organization is working well or show where things are distributed to the different managers for their review. Managers confirm that timetables are being adhered to and that projects are being completed in a timely manner. These time reports not only identify amounts of costs and time used to complete these projects, but also help management establish budgets for the coming year. Overall, the use of these controls is understood and accepted by all employees.
Each employee realizes the need for these mechanisms and strives to operate within the proper guidelines. There are times when employees’ hours or costs are over budget, and management must delve into the reasons surrounding the circumstance. 6. 1 Framework of Risk Management The key point that PTV focus is the framework of risk management policies and procedures and management controls overseen by the board of directors or equivalent management body of the firm should specifically cover derivatives activity, clearly establish responsibility for its implementation, and provide for accurate, informative and timely reporting to management.
This framework should be communicated to all concerned and should be reviewed as business and market circumstances change. The PTV’s board of directors or other equivalent body establish and communicate risk management policies and procedures for derivatives activities that integrated with the PTV’s overall management policies.
Such policies and procedures should address the measurement of market risk and credit risk including aggregate exposures against risk tolerance objectives (position limits or capital at risk); acceptability criteria for counterparties, strategies and products (hedging, covered writing, risk management, position taking and related legal risks); risk monitoring procedures and exception reporting criteria; personnel policies (including expertise, training and compensation policies); the separation of trading and risk management functions; and the establishment of management controls and checks over accounts, traders, operational staff and systems.
The PTV’s main focus is that framework provide for two-way communication between the board and persons responsible for implementing board policies. Delineation of derivatives authority should be without prejudice to ultimate board supervisory responsibility Controls address stress scenarios, confidence levels, credit assumptions and market risk measurement methodologies, separation of back office, accounting and compliance functions from trading, risk policies and integration of accounting systems. Stress tests test the consequences of severe price moves and changes in market behavior, including changes in correlations and other risk assumptions. 6. 2 Independent Market Risk Management
Management controls provide for independent market risk management at the PTV to develop and monitor the application of risk limit policies, to review and approve valuation systems . 6. 3 Independent Credit Risk Management Management controls provide for independent credit risk management at the PTV to consider credit exposure measurement standards, set and monitor credit limits, and to review leverage, concentration and risk reduction arrangements. Appetite for risk, quality of credits, level of concentration, reliance on credit enhancements, measurement methodologies and separation of sales supervision from exposure supervision are subject to controls. Controls also address the risk of failure to deliver or of termination provisions, as appropriate. 6. 4 In-House Expertise and Resources
In view of the speed of evolution and complexity of derivatives products, PTV devote adequate resources to all aspects of risk management controls, including back office systems and accounting and supervision. PTV makes every effort to ensure that knowledge at all levels of the firm, and of traders and risk managers is adequate in terms of market developments for the appropriate assessment and management of risks. 6. 5 Risk Reduction Techniques PTV use appropriate risk reduction techniques such as master agreements, netting arrangements, collateralization of transactions and third party credit enhancements, including letters of credit and guarantees. Firms also should consider risk reduction techniques to address operations risk, including contingency planning.
Controls address credit enhancements in terms of exposure and explore the use of master agreements to reduce documentation risk and to increase the potential to assign and/or otherwise unwind transactions. Legal capacity of counterparties to transact and legality of netting arrangements should be evaluated. 6. 6 Valuations and Exposures PTV on both an entity and a group basis should have the capability to make accurate risk valuations daily, using an acceptable methodology to mark-to-market and to identify concentrations. Potential exposures to credit and market risk should also be calculated using appropriate methodologies. Exposures may be aggregated provided netting arrangements are acceptable and enforceable.
Arrangements are made to value dynamic portfolios sufficiently frequently to address exposures taking into account legal netting arrangements. Outputs of simulations should be tested against actual results and adjusted accordingly. 6. 7 Systems PTV’s accounting, risk management and information systems ensure adequate and timely documenting, processing, confirming, approving as appropriate, and reconciling of trades and valuation systems used by front and back offices; assessing of risk on a global (firm-wide) basis; accurate and timely reporting to management; and external reporting by management. Internal or external independent systems reviews are used to verify that such systems are operating as designed.
The complexity and dynamic nature of derivatives trading activity and portfolios require that accurate and timely information is always available. Systems must are kept constantly under review to be certain that they permit tracking and reporting financial performance and effectuating management policies. Significant deficiencies in the design or operation of the systems that could adversely affect the entity’s ability to record, process, summarize, and report financial data should be reported upon. This is not intended to define the scope of external financial audits. 6. 8 Liquidity, Funding Arrangements and Financial Performance PTV monitors on a continuing basis financial performance, including profit and loss, funding requirements and sources and cash flows.
Risk management personnel take account of revenues and the adequacy of funding arrangements in designing and implementing risk management strategies. Do Liquidity planning attempt to anticipate changes in cash flow or funding requirements and should accommodate the possible need to rebalance portfolios, augment collateral, and permit the management of defaults. CHAPTER 7: SWOT ANALYSIS SWOT Analysis is the strength, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. STRENGTH The strength of PTV is its nationwide coverage unlike any other channel. WEAKNESS Its weakness is the business of government induced programs and low quality. OPPORTUNITIES The opportunities are to expand globally, and add quality programs with slight change in culture. THREATS
The threats are all the other quality cable operators which have taken the market share. In PEST, the political forces are playing a lot of role in the media these days, the economic factors are diminishing, social effects are causing other channels to capture PTV’s share and technological advances have led PTV to change its infrastructure a bit. CHAPTER 8: CONCLUSION The very idea of a channel dedicated to the regional languages of a country, present infinite opportunities of programming and its presentation, which calls for innovation, and a systematic plan and strategy. We must create events by way of festivals based on our rural culture, customs and tradition, folklore and classical literature.
In a world given over to diversity, this channel can make an imprint amongst the galaxy of available channels, as a truly Pakistani Channel, and has the potential of creating and maintaining its own identity. The challenge of any new enterprise, is to survive in a competitive world. Apologies of any kind whether pertaining to lack of resources or other limitations, will have no justification, and nothing short of commitment, inspiration and creativity will make the channel worth its while. There are exclusive language channels already on-air with some more coming up. We not only have to improve the quality of programming contents in each language, but also gear up to match exclusivity.
