Elyse Joanna Marla Sarah Flat Leadership vs. Short Leadership Flat Leadership vs. Short Leadership
  • Lessons Learned from the Brits
  • Relatively flat business environment
  • Decentralized authority
  • Nelson trusted his sailors’ expertise since they were life-time seamen
  • Nelson sailed with his fleet
  • Innovative for the time period
  • Not afraid to deviate from the regular strategy
  • What Not to Napoleon
  • Not confident in his ability, sailors weren’t inspired
  • The sailors didn’t identify with the cause, no common heritage
  • Modern Day Applications
  • Resource Based Theory
  • Tangible resources don’t necessarily translate to successful ventures
  • i.e. Big Armada Spain/France vs. Seafaring England
  • Companies with a systematic, fixed strategy are less successful than competitors who are flexibile
  • Must be able to change as the environment changes
  • Staff must be able to use new technology (resources)
  • Examples:
  • Zappos – no need for a fancy physical store to sell shoes
  • NYC Bloomberg bullpen – flat structure encourages trust & loyalty among employees
