Modern Organisational Hierarchy
Shekar Poojary, Accounts Manager, United Arab Emirates
In the vertical layers of ranks of personnel within an organization, each layer subordinate to the one above it. Organization hierarchy is often shown in the form of an organization chart. An extended hierarchy is typical of a bureaucracy, but during the later 20th and early 21st centuries the layers of hierarchical positions within large organizations have often been reduced as part of downsizing exercises. These result in shallow or nonexistent hierarchies of flexible, flat organizations, within which there is greater employee empowerment and autonomy. There is no more important or less important managerial roles in managerial hierarchy. Each layer is an integral part of the root.
