Some 90 years ago Max Weber proposed his ‘ideal’ bureaucratic system of organisation design and administration to increase efficiency and effectiveness. According to Samson and JAYPAYNE the rules and procedures so characteristic of bureaucracies have ensured that ‘everyone gets equal treatment, and everyone knows what the rules are. This has enabled many organisations to become extremely efficient’. There is evidence however in support of arguments against this claim.
