Centralisation

What is Centralisation?

Centralisation is the process by which the activities of an organization, particularly those regarding planning and decision-making, become concentrated within a particular location and/or group or keeping all of the important decision making powers within head office or the center of the organization.

Examples:

  • Apple
  • Mc Donalds

Pros

  • by making the decisions on a large scale you can save money.
  • the organisation can benefit from decisiions made by more expirenced senior managers.

Cons

  • other branches may not feel as if they have any independance and therfore will be unhappy.
