Steffi Graf has supposed leadership of Ace Products after several years of loyal service. Ace Products is international manufacturer of copiers, fax machines, and printers. Historically, their customers have fallen in four groups: small businesses, hospitals, airlines, and state and local governments. After talking with her daughter, who has just finished her business degree, Steffi is beginning to wonder if reorganizing would benefit Ace Products. The organization chart demonstrates that there is the Vice-President of Manufacturing, Vice-President of Finance and Accounting, and Vice-President of Marketing; they all report to President of Ace Products.

2. Is Ace likely to be flat or tall? Discuss.
