Joe Dickinson Exam 1 HRM 301 1. With two CEOs at the front of their company, Oracle Corp is currently going against the minimum Chain of command principle. The principle of minimum chain of command states that an organization should choose a hierarchy with the minimum number of levels of authority necessary to achieve its strategy. By creating a second CEO position they are directly inserting another authoritative figure into the company’s hierarchy. With this action they seem to be going along with an Overlapping Authority principle at their highest position. Like all hierarchy structure choices for a company, there will be some advantages as well as disadvantages. Oracle Corp is a company that provides software as a service, as well as technology and service to aid in expansion of businesses. It might be to their advantage to have one CEO that excels in the business side of selling their particular products and then the other CEO have a background in the technical side of their products. The CEO with a background in business for example can take hold of the companies marketing tactics, purchasing of resources, and other financial fields that affect the corporation on a daily basis. The CEO with the background in technology however can worry about the way their software service is rolled out, what hardware they use, how most efficiently to expand a client’s current technological infrastructure.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
