In a typical top-down management structure, the power to hire and fire employees is generally in the hands of managers.

Brian Robertson — designed a 3-Tier Partnership App to answer a different question: “How can we account for the difference between partners deeply committed to the organization, and those for whom the commitment is lesser and more temporary?”
- It separates “partnership commitment” from financial compensation.
- It defines three tiers of partners: Standard Partner, Tenured Partner, and Core Partner. Each tier requires a higher level of commitment to the organization, and in return offers a higher level of commitment from the organization.
- It was designed for a relatively small organization.
