Flat Organisation

Marketing dictionary

Flat Organisation

An organisational structure in which most middle-management levels and their functions have been eliminated, thus bringing the top management in direct contact with the frontline salespeople, shop floor employees, and customers. Despite their breadth, flat organisations can benefit from most of the advantages enjoyed by small companies, such as faster response time to changing conditions and customer preferences.
