Abstract. Bureaucracy and human creativity may be seen as the two extremes of a dimension when analyzing the continuous activity of organizations pursuing a goal or trying to achieve their objectives. The bureaucracy occurs and develops only if the outcome of the organizational activity is beneficial to both the consumers and the suppliers, or else this “organizational technique” should be shrunk using a managerial system in order that performances match the requirements of an open and democratic society.

Keywords: bureaucracy; bureaucratic behavior; activities structuring; concentration of authority; organizational control; functionality flaws; the firm model; the bureau model; the firm model.
