Tall Structures

Advantages

  • The lines of communication and the responsibilities of workers are clear
  • Narrower spans of control, which means managers have less subordinates to look after
  • There are plenty of opportunities for promotion

Disadvantages

  • Decision-making is usually slow in tall structures because of centralized decision-making
  • Tall structures usually mean higher compensation and administrative costs for the different management layers.
  • Tall structures could hamper innovation because the people closest to the end users do not make resource allocation and design decisions.
