I really enjoyed this recent article from Buffer about their experimentation with a flat structure, and how they found that some of their expectations were misplaced, with them now returning to a basic heierarchy.

What have been your experiences of self-management or changes to the management structure in your organisations? I’m interested to hear if Buffer’s experiences are specific to their organisation or quite typical.

Nik Penhale-Smith has also written some interesting articles on his experience of having no managers – so it would be good to get more views on the subject!
