Top Down. Bottom Up?
Frederick Taylor stressed the importance of structure in achieving organisational effectiveness. Top down management organisational structure, often represented by a triangle, implied the importance of control. It gave the impression ‘the boss knew more’ and that ‘workers’ should follow the ‘bosses’ instructions.
Contemporary leadership and the influence of visionaries such as Konosuke Matsushita (Panasonic) identified that the workers’ insight was critical to innovation, quality and performance. Leaders should empower and ‘support’ their people. The triangle turned on its head symbolises this.
‘Eta’ is the fifth letter of the Greek alphabet. Engineers use ‘eta’ to symbolise ‘Efficiency’.
