A chain of command is a direct line of authority and responsibility along which orders are passed. This is sometimes called a hierarchical structure in the civilian sector. Generally, orders are passed from higher ranking staff to lower ranking staff.

Why do we need a chain of command? In nature there is a tendency in groups for one creature to dominate others. As humans, we seek a sense of belonging. Groups provide security, order, a sense of purpose

and direction. Even in informal groups a hierarchical structure will develop. Why Do We Need A Chain Of Command? NDOC is a paramilitary organization.

With over 3,000 employees structure is vital. To ensure that the NDOCs tasks and assignments are completed without confusion or wasted time and effort. So that everyone knows what their responsibilities are.

Why Do We Need A Chain Of Command? So that everyone is accountable to someone else for their actions. To provide a sense of direction. To ensure clear communications.

Unity of Command The theory that subordinate in an organization must be accountable to one and only one superior. This is sometimes referred to as having one boss.

Its important to know whos in command of a situation. Unity of Command Unity of Command exists to prevent a subordinate from receiving conflicting instructions from different supervisors which could lead to confusion and paralysis. Dual Supervision

When two superiors in separate chains of command provide dual supervision to a subordinate with specific responsibility. Coordination and Span of Control Coordination is most effective when the lines of authority, responsibility, and accountability are clearly defined.

Span of control is the number of subordinates or elements within an organization that are accountable to one superior. Span of control No fixed number, but 7 10 is generally the accepted rule. Routine type work can increase span of

control. Highly motivated or trained workers can also increase span of control. Character of the manager. Who Are They? NDOC
