Flat, Flexible Organizational Structures
The Trend Booms On
An amazing number of papers (35) were grouped under the track heading “Flat, Flexible Organization Structures and Projects” at INTERNET’s 10th World Congress on Project Management held June ’90 in Vienna. Does this giant literature spotlight signify that “lean and mean” structures are now “in”? Are more dynamic organizational models now generally recognized, along with the techniques for adjusting company culture and individual management styles to fit the needs of lateral management? The papers presented provide some insight into these questions.
