One of the big fads of the last ten years was so called “flat structures,” and I wrote a chapter in Naked Leader that blamed them for indecision, inaction and poor results.
I was wrong.
Just as I would have been wrong to blame traditional, top down structures in the same way.
Just as many people in organisations today are wrong to blame “matrix reporting” for them not being successful.
Because organisational structures, or destructures, may be simple, they may be complex, they may be traditional or they may be new, but they are never the reason for you not doing what you have to do, to achieve what you need to achieve, every single day.
Not sure you fully understand how your team or function or organisation is structured?
Get over it, and get on with your job.
With my love and best wishes
