Q.”Administrative efficiency is enhanced by keeping at a minimum the number of organizational levels through which a matter must pass before it is acted upon”. – (Herbert A. Simon)
Ans:Administrative structure of public or private space is based on hierarchy. The hierarchy is nothing but various levels of organization. In an organization there is top level i.e., executive, then there is middle level management i.e., manager and third level is supervisor at lower level. Now decisions taken at top level are transmitted to lower level for implementation of decisions.
If organizational levels are very tall that will cause unnecessary delay, and there arises a communication problem and supervision will also become a problem and finally will affect efficiency of organization. So to improve efficiency these organizational level should be kept at minimum number. The decision can be communicated and can be achieved easily and supervision on span of control can be kept at optimum level. In this way we can easily achieve organisational goals.
