Avoid excessive checks on progress. The scalar principle establishes the hierarchical structure of the organization. It states that authority and responsibility should flow in a direct line vertically from the highest level of the program hierarchy organization to the lowest level. It refers to the vertical division of authority, and responsibility and the assignment of various duties along the scalar chain. 6 shows a typical, scalar principle mechanism (Naidu and Krishna Rao 2008). Although most organization charts are drawn to emphasize the vertical hierarchy and superior–subordinate relationships, very few indicate horizontal interactions, those integrative activities that flow between departments, units, or individuals at approximately the same level, such as the technical different departments dealing with quality assurance/quality control, planning, quantity surveying, cost control, value engineering, procurement, contracts.

For example, experts might be asked to brainstorm the possible outcomes from the imposition of an affirmative action plan in a workplace. Other experts involved in a program, such as the designers, consultants, and specialists, should help to determine the prerequisite for a program specified by time, cost, specifications, constraints, and resources among other factors. Thus, program management can focus on the level of aggregation that yields the most accurate decision. As well as improving the use of program management by tailoring it to decisions, sufficient knowledge and information must exist to enable different levels of aggregation.
