Quick Reference

The removal of layers of middle management (usually) from organizational structures, in order to bring an organization closer to the customer and generally to be more flexible and responsive. The process is facilitated by increased use of information technology, which allows hierarchies of sequential decision making to be replaced by less bureaucratic procedures. See also broadbanding.
