Working for a huge corporation means that the employee often is subjected to employment restructures. Many companies have gone through this stage in order to survive financially. Top management and CEO’s of leading corporations often believe they are forced to have an employment restructure in order to save the corporation at hand. To them, and to many of their share-holders the company is like a baby who needs adults to make sacrifices for them in order for the baby to continue to exist in the world. In a sense this element of a business restructure is a Natural Selection element in our dog eat dog world.
One of the world biggest companies have recently created a restructure which has been labeled “Generation X.” This work restructure entailed the corporation to hit the internal hierarchical structure on the proverbial head hence shattering their skeleton model of a very basic hierarchical organization structure into creating many more complex and a condensed version of the skeleton model structure. The simplicity singular component became a complex set of components. This is an example of upside down Minimalist art – namely having a minimalist skeleton model basic organizational structure replaced by a multitude and a much more complex designed structure.
This restructure mimics Totalitarianism and Despot ruling; but at the same time disguises herself under the cloak of decentralization. It is not a fair decentralization because the power all rests at the top with the lead authority. Virtually zero power rests in the hands of the decentralized, rendering employees affected by this change-over:
[a] stripped of the autonomy in their departments
[b] being completely controlled by authorities.
