values with honesty, respect, and kindness. Their three values that keep the business going: smart, fast, and kind (One Smooth Stone, 2018). Third question: Why does One Smooth Stone uses a Horizontal arrangement rather than a Vertical arrangement? What is the advantage of being Horizontal? One Smooth Stone states “Ours is a creative environment in which assumptions are challenged with respect, questions are freely asked, the discussion is open and listening is foundational. We practice humility, integrity, and accountability in serving our clients and each other (One Smooth Stone, 2018).” This tells me that they have been highly successful with the horizontal arrangement. “Horizontal organizations have fewer rules and put more power in the hands of employees, which can increase employee satisfaction. Employees in a horizontal organization may have a stronger sense of identification with the company, feeling they are part of a team (Myers, n.d.).” This is a good advantage to have, the genuine sense of being part of a team and having everyone on the same page by having open communication and strong work ethics.

    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.
