  6. 6. Tall and Flat Structures
  7. 7. Problems with Tall Structures Principle of minimum chain of command – Maintaining a hierarchy with the least number of levels of authority needed to achieve a strategy. Sources of bureaucratic costs:
  8. 8. Centralization or Decentralization Authority patterns in organizations: – Centralized  Decision making retained in the hands of upper-level managers. – Decentralized  Decisions delegated to lower levels in the organization.
  9. 9.

  14. 14. 14  Simple Structure: – Stage I:  Entrepreneur – Decision making tightly controlled – Little formal structure – Planning short range/reactive – Flexible and dynamic
  15. 15. 15  Functional Structure: – Stage II:  Management team  Functional specialization  Delegation decision making  Concentration/specialization in industry
  16. 16. 16  Divisional Structure: – Stage III:  Diverse product lines  Decentralized decision making  SBU’s  Almost unlimited resources
  17. 17. 17  Beyond SBU’s: – Stage IV:  Increasing environmental uncertainty  Technological advances  Size & scope of worldwide businesses  Multi-industry competitive strategy  Better educated personnel

New units don’t have to be integrated across organization – Stronger pursuit of internal efficiencies. Performance of individual units is readily measurable. Disadvantages – Establishing the divisional- corporate authority relationship – Distortion of information by divisions – Competition for resources by divisions – Transfer pricing problems between divisions – Short-term research and development focus – Bureaucratic costs

  22. 22. Matrix Structure Advantages – Flexibility of the structure and membership – Minimum of direct hierarchical control – Maximizes use of employees’ skills – Motivates employees; frees up top management Disadvantages – High bureaucratic costs – High costs (time and money) for building relationships – Two-boss employee’s role conflict
