   Organizations should attempt to remove the large number of positions and
   salary levels that categorize employees by skill and experience because a
   flat structure is more probable to foster a congenial working environment
   within the company. I disagree with above statement for a number of reasons.
   
   
   For every job, motivation is an important factor. If organizations have to
   succeed and make a mark in this world of competition, they will have to find
   ways to reward their employees to strive to help in the growth of the
   organization. And one if the main motivating factors is money and power. The
   craving for more money and power is never ending. The promotions and salary
   hikes are one of the main goals individuals work for. 
   
   However, if the main aim for removing the positions within an organization
   and to flatten salary levels is to provide a better working environment,
   this can be achieved in other ways. Every employee could be told how
   important his work is to the organization and how he contributes to the
   company. If everyone is proud of what work he is doing, whether as a CEO or
   as a clerk, and they respect each others role in the organization, this
   will make the organization a better place to work. Some of the steps taken
   by some leading organizations are dropping the cabin structure and
   introduction of similar cubicles for employees of all designation, single
   cafeterias for people of every section of the hierarchy, same game rooms for
   all employees, use of first names for addressing peers rather than the use
   of words like Sir or Boss. 
   
   Hence if organizations aim to provide a better working environment for their
   employees, cutting down salary and the hierarchy is not the solution. They
   should try to look for other viable ways to this effect to bring about the
   feeling of equality.

Subject: LEVELS OF IN ORGANISATION ARE MORE EFFECTIVE
   organisation should attempt to remove large number of positions and salary
   levels that categorize employees by skill and experience because a flat
   structure is more probable to foster a congenial working environment within
   the company. i strongly disagree with the above statement for number of
   reasons.
	 its well-known that an organization's business strongly depends on its
   employee's effeciency and job-satisfaction. the levels of hierachy in an
   company are the major motivational factors for the growth of employees.
	 a person wont feel like eating food unless and until he/she is hungry,
   the same way i feel	hierarchial structure in an organisation create hunger
   for employees to work hard  for self growth.
	 the levels structure not only helps in maintaining the discipline of
   work strategies but also help the seniors to get the work done effectively
   by the sub-ordinates.
      hence, the level pattern has always proved to be best one  and will
   always continue to be.

      within the company. I disagree with above statement for a number of

   The organization is a place where one can find thousands of people with
   thousands of reasons.Organization starts with the particular  goal and have
   to achieve with people who works with them. People who works with the
   organization have their own goal . But the most important goal is to earn
   money with the knowledge and enthusiasm in them. If they found that
   everybody has same value ,then motivation power goes done and they do not
   give their effort as they could have given.
   In survey it is found that the organizational structure has done better then
   those who do not have. Because every person in this world has different
   talent and different capacity to handle and have different attitude which
   helps to achieve different target and go further.It is possible to achieve
   target with more talent and experience then those who do not have.
   therefore I am no agree with the above statement and I believe that
   organizational structure does better then any other organization.

   The biggest asset for a company is its employees. The success or failure of
   the company depends on how well the management utilizes the potential of its
   man power. It is imperative that a company has an organizational structure
   that identifies the hierarchy. This gives the employees a complete
   understanding of the power pyramid and the levels of responsibilities and
   ownerships. I do favor a hierarchical style of organization that eliminates
   much confusion prevalent in a flat structure. 
   
   Companies having a flat structure often lack clear chain of command. This
   leads to power struggle and chaos in the company. Due to lack of defined
   roles, the leadership is almost non existent that results in poor decision
   making. 
   
   Companies have never been so competitive. The ever increasing line of
   technology products makes the competition even fiercer. Companies vie for
   recognition of their products. Technological advancements have resulted in
   scarcity of top niche talent. Skilled workers have great opportunities for
   advancement. It becomes very important for a company to identify and define
   the skill levels for a specific job. Expertise in subject matter is an
   essential prerequisite. The talent and skill level for each grade of job
   within a category are very well defined prior to hiring. In this way, the
   company is able to accomplish its goals and meet its business objectives
   
   A well known automotive supplier company created a technical training
   program that lays out the career advancement path from a machine operator to
   Process Engineering Manager. A machine operator can advance in to a machine
   technician upon successfully completing a set of course work. The next level
   would be a process technician from where acquiring additional skill sets
   would take him to the level of process engineer. A process engineer with
   people skills and strong technical background could advance into process
   engineering manager. Ever since the company laid out this clear and concise
   career path, the employees were motivated to pursue and advance themselves
   to the next position. This resulted not only in betterment of the
   individuals in concern; however the management noticed a sharp increase in
   productivity. 
   
   In conclusion, organizations with hierarchical structure have a refined
   talent pool that can align itself to challenging and changing demands from
   its customer. The clarity and definition of roles at different
   classification and categories makes it very easy for the company to assign a
   team that will successfully accomplish the task. The benefits that will
   accrue by placing the right individuals at the right place are countless.
