Resource description

Learning organizations’ enable companies to remove hierarchical levels and tointroduce a flatter organizational structure, which can lead to reduced costs and increasedproductivity. A recent Danish study has proved coherence between a flat, integrativeorganizational structure and an increased productivity. This enables a kind ofmanagement in which the managerial form is not as direct as it is in more traditionalstructured companies. Value-based management is advanced as a possible answer to thequestion of which managerial form that is appropriate for these kind of companies.In the article, value-based management is described as well as the underlying factors thatare affected by such a managerial form. Required managerial elements in relation tovalue-based management are advanced. Examples from Hewlett-Packard are used toillustrate both the use of value-based management in practice and the underlying factors.
