    What you’ll learn to do: Describe the organizational patterns of a retail business

    Varying sizes of retail businesses utilize different organizational patterns and organizational charts. Each level of a business from executive to floor staff of a retail business need to have a job description, and clear outline of the duties.

    From the smallest local store to national chains and diversified retailers, insuring clear job descriptions and hierarchy are imperative to an effectively running business.
