The term ‘delayering’ is used in the management of corporate restructuring and refers to a planned reduction in the number of layers of corporate hierarchy. For example, many organisations seek to have a minimum number of tiers between the CEO and the most junior employee. The consequence is that managers often have more direct reports. See also Structure, Organisational.
