    genioux, MITSMR Fact: We need to reconceive managerial authority for today’s business environment — not eliminate it.

    Foundational Fact: The need for hierarchy isn’t going away, but the form it takes is changing: deciding how things will be done rather than telling people what to do, and designing and enforcing the rules of the game rather than making everyone play it in a certain way.

    Foundational Fact: We see a confluence of business and social trends influencing the development of new kinds of hierarchies. Rapid technological progress, instant communication, value creation based on knowledge rather than physical resources, globalization, and a more educated workforce require us to rethink how we wield managerial authority.

    Current Fact: Companies need clear, fairly enforced policies and procedures that achieve coordination and cooperation while respecting employee desires for empowerment and relative autonomy.

    Current Fact: Managers have to figure out when to intervene and when to let employees handle problems themselves.

    The Key Challenge Fact: The key challenge for designing and operating hierarchies today and tomorrow is to balance two opposing forces. The first is the desire, common to us all, for empowerment and autonomy, which helps companies mobilize employees’ creativity and exploit their unique knowledge and capabilities. The other is the need — particularly in environments characterized by rapid change and interdependent activities across the enterprise — to exercise managerial authority on a large scale.

    Foundational  Fact: In redesigning managerial authority and hierarchy for the 21st century, leaders must realize that they don’t need to know everything, but only just enough, and they need to consider what their employees want and think is fair in designing structures and systems.

    Extra-condensed knowledge



    The big picture of the digital age is knowledge that illuminates exceptional opportunities, relevant lessons learned, complex risks, significant challenges, key warnings, multiple threats and "positive" and "negative" disruptions.
    • For all the hype and promise swirling around the idea of eliminating management to create agile, flat organizations, bosses and corporate hierarchies have remained extremely resilient. As we argued in the pages of MIT Sloan Management Review in 2014, under the right conditions, having such hierarchies in place is the best way to handle the coordination and cooperation problems that beset human interactions.
    • Rethinking Authority
      • There is compelling evidence that many companies are removing layers of management and that more decisions are being delegated to employees. Organizations are still hierarchical, but hierarchy is changing its form. There is also evidence that the exercise of authority is changing.
      • In the modern, knowledge-based economy, however, it is increasingly unlikely that bosses will know everything their workers know. A tech CEO might be skilled at finance and marketing or good at strategic planning and human relations but might not know how to code. A sales manager might understand the product but be unfamiliar with a specific sales territory.
    • How Not to Use Authority
      • It is hard to design a hierarchy well, particularly when employees are empowered and the company is delayered. Managers are increasingly facing this challenge.
    • Enabling Authority
      • One of the most important ways in which managers exercise authority is in how they delegate it to others. To enable authority in subordinates, managers must first convince them that they really do have autonomy over certain decisions and actions and earn their trust that authority will not be summarily withdrawn.
    • Formalization and Transparency
      • When job descriptions are well understood and distinct, with little functional overlap, problems coordinating work or making decisions are less likely to arise between employees. 
    • Exercising Authority Smartly
      • Every business model, strategy, organizational structure, or management style has its strong and weak points. Exercising authority smartly means figuring out what decisions to delegate, who to put in key positions, and when to intervene, as well as deciding whether the system needs to be revised in response to changing conditions.
