Organizational structures provide a framework that businesses can use to structure tasks, management, and other activities. Through these structures, organizational units such as individual employees and departments can be assigned responsibilities and managed more effectively. Several types of organizational structures exist. These include the traditional hierarchy, flat organizations, flatarchies, holacratic organizations, and flatter organizations.

A flatter structure is designed to enhance lines of communication by removing some of the organizational layers between decision makers. In addition, lines of communication flow up the organizational hierarchy rather than just down. This information flow helps to encourage collaboration, innovation, and employee satisfaction. To be successful, flatter organizations require technology that enables virtual teamwork at all times and a management philosophy that emphasizes service to the employee.
