Bureaucracy is the enemy
"Bureaucracy fears change, is terrified by speed and hates simplicity... Big corporations are filled with people in bureaucracy who want to cover things cover the bases, say they did everything a little bit. Well, now have people out there all by themselves, there they are, accountable for their successes and their failures... Some who looked good in the big bureaucracy looked silly when you left them alone."

  9 Signs of a Losing Organization

 

 

Drop unnecessary work
Stop monitoring things and your subordinates' performance too closely. This sort of command-and-control management style does not permit managers to spot trouble soon enough. Stop firming memos at one another as they prevent you from talking directly with junior managers and field workers.

Employee Empowerment: Yin-Yang Balance

Delayer, create a flat responsive organization
"Every layer is a bad layer. The world is moving at such a pace that control has become a limitation. It slows you down." Without all those layers, your company can become lean and agile. Do everything you can to simplify, remove complexity and formality, and make the organization more responsive and agile.
