Description of Orgainzational Structure and Planning

Demotech as an organization requires new members in order to fulfill its goals. As we want to attracting new hands to work towards Demotech goals, a new organizational structure has been set up.

The Demotech structure is not a hierarchy nor does it inted to become one. The Demotech structure is organizational. Control and authority are attributed to a history of commitment and expertise, and not through position. Demotech does require a clear division of tasks, particularly between information and communication services and actual research. A person's contribution should be facilitated by structure, not inhibited.

Groups allow for clarity in the role a person intends to play in demotech. The opportunity to create an identity as a member of one team or annother is an asset to facilitating work and stimulating entusiasm.

Felxibility is essential to a healthy orgainzational structure. People should not be limited to a single position, nor should a person in one capacity feel aleineted from work in annother capacity. For this reason, Demotech as an institution takes an active role in uniting people working on demotech socially so that the entire organization can function as a single unit. A group member is a member of demotech who accepts the responsibilities of a specific role in supporting the whole organization.
