Organising in its formal sense refers to a collectivity of persons engaged in pursuing specified objectives.

These individuals in the enterprise cannot be left to perform in their own way. Here, arises the need to distribute the work among them and to assign them authority and responsibility for the achievement of organisational objectives. So organising is coordinated efforts of the individuals working in an enterprise to achieve its goals.
