Flat structures work, and work better. It’s time to start reimagining management. Making everyone a chief is a good place to start.
A fine blog post on HBR by Tim Kastelle. Find Tim's blog here: The Discipline of Innovation.
Interesting article. (From the article): There is a growing body of evidence that shows that organizations with flat structures outperform those with more traditional hierarchies in most situations (see the work of Gary Hamel for a good summary of these results). But while we are seeing an increasing number of firms using flat structures, they are still relatively rare. Why is this so?
Don, thank you for sharing this article!
Flat organizations seem to facilitate efficient communication, response, and action. When it works...front line talent are empowered to make decisions.
Tradtional frameworks tend to have more steps of decision-making and approval.
