Make sure that everyone has been assigned definite positions and responsibilities within the organization.

It is extremely detrimental to morale and efficiency when employees do not know just what their jobs are or what they are responsible for.

Do not keep tentative organization changes hanging over people; effect them as soon as they become reasonably clear. Changing them again later is better than leaving people in poorly or improperly defined positions.
