Hierarchy of authority

Dear friends,

The amount of authority increases with each level higher a person or organization is in hierarchy. I like to understand why is  hierarchy of authority critically important for an organization?

Regards,

Vaswani

Re: Hierarchy of authority

The hierarchy of authority in an organization is designed to benefit the company and the employees. The company grows with the strength of a competent managerial staff, and employees look to management to provide career development. A hierarchy is also a method of maintaining managerial integrity. 

In short, a company requires a hierarchy for its employees to establish the different levels to identify the chain of command and effectively communicate the process.
