Effective organization matters:
There are couples of guidelines that a person have proposed and seems to be applied in most classical organizations (in classical organization hierarchy of power and responsibility flow from the top to bottom).
Each person in the organization should report to only on boss. The responsibility and authority of every supervisor should be expressed clearly in writing.
Every person is responsible for the acts of his/her subordinates. Every person should be assigned a single function (or as less functions as possible) based on specialization and skills of the person.
The operation functions (line functions) and staff functions should be kept separate but line managers and staff managers should be encouraged to coordinate to boost synergy.
The span of central should be reasonable and feasible (span of control means the number of positions controlled by one person (mostly a manager).
