Chester Barnard maintained that managers must find ways to encourage workers to cooperate with each other and management willingly.

One concept to consider is bureaucratic management, which is defined as “the exercise of control on the basis of knowledge.” The aim of bureaucracy is not to protect authority but to achieve goals in the most efficient way possible. This like hiring, promotion, and punishment is based completely on experience and achievement. How did Bob Taylor go about creating his Great Group?
