    The only thing I can think of off the top of my head is that the people at the top of the hierarchy, the board, have more authority implying more centralised decisions rather than the managers having their own way and making mistakes.

    Something to think about is that the length of the chain depends on the size of the organisation, the extent to which the business diversifies, how complex the controls are, how complex the products are and the type of people employed. With this in mind and a bit more thought, you can understand why a long chain can benefit certain types of businesses as opposed to others.
