flat organization

  

Definition

An organizational 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 organizations can benefit from most of the advantages enjoyed by small companies, such as faster response time to changing conditions and customer preferences.
