the best management theory

what is it

It is a mix of theories X and Y created by Douglas Mcgregor. The x Theory is being strict with the employees while Y theory allow employees a little bit of freedom. The premise is managers allowing some freedom while still controlling other aspects of work. It is partially centralized and decentralized, but leans a little more toward the latter
