imapct of chain of command on distribution of authority?
- 1 decade agoFavorite Answer
The simplest answer is that responsibility and authority need to have an equal and direct relationship. In other words if I have the responsibility to see that something gets done I also have to have the necessary authority to see that it gets done.
The link between chain of command and distribution of authority is a matter of delegation. As long as the authority and responsibility is equally distributed as it is passed down the chain of command the system will work smoothly. If the distribution becomes unequal the smooth functioning of the organization will be adversily affected.Source(s): NCOES
