The chain of command in a company refers to the different levels of command within the organization. It starts with the top position such as CEO or the business owner, all the way down to the front-line workers. Companies create a chain of command in order to flow instructions downward and accountability upward by providing each level of workers with a supervisor.
A quick view of how the chain of command should be used to effectively and efficiently work:
What facilitates implementation
of a command and control system on the intervention?
Common knowledge of the “rules of the game” (ie procedures)
Personal skills and “bosses” quality
Personal skills and qualities of the Operators
Trust between team members
Dialogue between team members (sharing)
A SYSTEM CAN BE DEFINED
AS “A COMPLEX OF INTERACTING ELEMENTS”
“INTERACTION MEANS THAT THE ELEMENTS ARE CONNECTED BY RELATIONSHIPS, SO THAT THE BEHAVIOR OF AN ELEMENT IS DIFFERENT FROM WHAT IT WOULD BE ITS BEHAVIOR IF IT WAS TO ACT BY ITSELF
IN OTHER WORDS: MAKE SYSTEM.
