If the CEO figures it out that fast, he deserves his bonus. Usually they don't notice these things until their golden parachute is fully inflated.

I had several bosses (second or third level management) that I never saw do anything other than walk around. Not even through work areas. Just up and down the halls. I don't recall it looking dynamic.

Thesis: give the PHB the responsibility for operating the coffeemaker. Anti-thesis: no coffee for anyone because he has broken the coffeemaker. Synthesis: Wally organizes a rebellion within the company and the PHB is eliminated and Ted takes his place, and the coffee intake goes back to normal. The CEO realizes six months later that absolutely nothing has been going on downstairs....

Valve Software supposedly runs this way. Google "Valve Employee Handbook." Wikipedia has this to say: "Valve is run as a flat organization without bosses, and uses open allocation (employees can move between teams at will).[40][42][43] Yanis Varoufakis, an economist working for Valve, has attempted to place Valve's organization in the context of theories of the firm and broader economic thinking.[44][45][46] Former employee Jeri Ellsworth has, however, criticized this structure as "a lot like high school", where while the structure is flat, certain people within the company still have more say in decisions than others.[47]"
