Authority Relationships

 
 
Authority relationship is the cohesive force which integrates different parts of the organization. A manager needs authority to manage his own department as well as to interact with other departments in the organization.

Line authority emerges in superior – subordinate relationships in which the superior is authorized to exercise control over his direct subordinates in a chain of hierarchy. Staff authority involves giving advice to line managers to carry on the operation. While line authority flows downward, staff authority may flow in any direction.
 
Line authority becomes apparent from the scalar principle. In this the relationship is exercised by direct supervision over a subordinate. The nature of staff relationships is advisory.
 

Line Relationship

 
A line manager has a clearly defined role to play in the organization which requires understanding of the nature of line authority. In the organizing process, activities are assigned to the individuals making them responsible for the proper performance of these activities. Authority is delegated to these individuals to perform the activities. These individuals, in turn, assign some of the activities to persons working below them in the hierarchy.
