The focus is on the evolution and transformation of organizational models in a high uncertainty environment.The functional, the divisional, the design-matrix structures and the new network organizational forms has been explored. The conclusion is that in a turbulent VUCA environment andconstant pressure for change it is impossible to achieve a competitive advantage in a static organizational structure. The main characteristics, respectively the strengths and weaknesses of the functional, the divisional, the matrix and the network structure, are analyzed based on seven key criteria – the efficiency, adaptability, timeliness, reliability, accountability, adequate external environment and strategy. The research models synthesize different solutions applied in social practice.
