In the case of a decentralized organizational structure, there is a greater flexibility for employees to act and decide. Individuals are more motivated to take ownership of their work which leads to greater job satisfaction. But in the end, it is most certainly about corporate agendas and invested interests.

“The new value system” is openly embraced as a way to help top-level managers keep their eyes on the dollar and its impact on the company. However, if we are to accept this at face value and ignore the social reality of these practices, we may lose the ability to remain objective about a system that permeates and promotes a continuum of consumption.
Centralization or Decentralization; in the end, the only kind of structure that truly works is the one that questions the implications and pitfalls of capitalism.

It appears, at least to me, that dispersing the ideology of capitalism around in the guise of autonomy do little more than bring those in power and their influence a little bit closer to home.
