I was looking today through 12manage and found an interesting leadership theory which I thought would be a good idea to include in today’s journal. The theory looked was based on centralization and decentralization. It had mentioned that centralization was a good way of giving power where it was deserved, i.e. in terms of giving power to others to be able to make decisions.

I thought about the applicability of this within a working business environment and can see that it is already utilised so thus it must surely work. It also gave a briefing about how there is a uniformity attached to it in that it is a low risk option. This I am not so sure about. Yes it may work because power is given to someone is deserving of it but wouldn’t this mean that others would then seek it also? In a way it defeats the purpose of even having a leader although I could see how it could work in a small working group.
