Span of Control
The phrase “span of control” relates to the number of individuals who report directly to any particular manager. Various trends have existed over the years, but the current approach to creating a proper span of control in an organization involves an analysis of what the organization and its employees need.
When you think about the span of control, a small number of direct reports creates a narrow span of control and a hierarchical structure in which decision-making frequently resides at the top of the organization. Narrow spans of control are more expensive, but they allow managers to have more time to interact with direct reports. They also tend to encourage professional growth and employee advancement because the manager knows the employees well and has time to spend with them individually.
According to the Society for Human Resource Management: “In contrast, a wide span of control refers to a larger number of direct reports supervised by one manager, creating a “flat” organization. This approach increases the number of interactions between the manager and his or her direct reports, which could cause managers to become overwhelmed but can also provide more autonomy.
