EDDL614 Concordia Chain Of Command Hierarchical Systems

Chain of Command

Due Tuesday

Educational institutions are traditionally hierarchical. However, organizational gurus such as Schien, Senge and Fullan promote lean and agile organizations that respond to customer needs.

E. Pinchot and Pinchot (2003), notes that “An organization that overemphasizes the role of the formal chain of command cannot embrace the multidimensional nature of the challenges organizations face today” (p. 46).

Recognizing the value of the above quote, how might you promote leadership practices that reduces formal chain of command structure and engages with communities. Identify at least three ways chain of command structures hinder community engagement.

Support your statements with evidence from the required studies, your research, or your experience. Cite and reference your sources in APA style.
