In the past, the traditional hierarchical structure of management sees production on the bottom, answering to their supervisors who, in turn answer to their management, and ultimately the final decision maker on top. If it worked previously, then why isn’t it as effective today?
When you flip the hierarchy upside down you are encouraging a creative environment and empowering your supervisors and managers. By ensuring they have the tools, the funding and the organizational freedom needed to effectively run their department, they become invested with a sense of ownership.
By shifting the dynamics of change to the mid level team and ensuring they have what they need to succeed, the workplace culture of the organization transforms and the returns are immeasurable.
