Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 17, 2013 12:24 PM

Organizational hierarchy might be a relic, however it is proving to a difficult relic to move aside. Many organizations are culturally addicted to hierarchies and, in education, the followers are part of the issue.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, August 19, 2013 4:29 AM

Flatter organisation structures is the utopia for 21st century business thinking, but it is naive to think that hierarchies will disappear, or don't fulfill some purpose. Google and Apple have fairly deep hiearchies, and they're not doing too badly!
