Linking departments: When the process of departmentation was completed, linking of departments has to be done so that those departments operate in a co-ordinated manner which gives a shape to overall organisation structure. 

Assigning Duties: On completion of departmentation process assigning duties i.e. defining authority and responsibilty to the employees on the basis of their skills and capabilities has to be done, which in consequence magnifies efficiency with regard to their work.
