Xiaomi organizational structure can be classified as matrix. Specifically, Xiaomi organizational structure is decentralized, where different business units are managed independently. Despite the large size of the business involving presence in 70 countries with more than 18000 employees, the company has less layers of management compared to other businesses of similar sizes.

Matrix organizational structure allows the mobile internet company to develop its new products and services in a short duration of time. This is due to absence of bureaucracy that is associated with hierarchical organizational structures. However, disadvantages of matrix organizational structure for the business may include lack of strict control by the top management over separate business units and lack of integration between the operations of individual business units.

Nevertheless, it is important for Xiaomi to maintain its flat organizational structure in order to remain flexible, so that the mobile internet company can adapt to frequent changes in the global marketplace.
