And how does the top layer make any decisions then, without being aware of what's happening in the company? If they only make decisions that can be made by participating in a single meeting per year, it doesn't really make any sense for that layer to exist at all. Continue recursively.

If there really are four layers of management in a company with 25 employees, that basically means each manager has zero, one or two subordinates. I really cannot see how that could work very well at all.

i was thinking ownership for a top layer, but that could be true for lower ones too. but i see your point, ownership and management are different things.
