These layers of geographic organization are often P&L units as well, sometimes relatively autonomous profit centers. The layering of profit centers is intended to maximize accountability. By breaking the business down into smaller units, managers of these units can compete in their niches with relative autonomy. At the enterprise level, however, the proliferation of layered P&L units is often a prime source of unrewarded complexity, and reducing the overall construct to seven levels will not solve this architectural problem.
Isolating the right anchor layer requires a bit of due diligence. It is important to decide at what level the primary strategic and tactical P&L decisions in the business should get made. A simple test is to ask: At what level can trade-off decisions across categories, markets, and investments in innovation and brand building be optimized for the good of the enterprise, while still keeping decision making close to the customer? The anchor layer should define the optimal level for these types of operating decisions.

Integration is fundamental to the global operating model, and most managers are presented with scores of opportunities to connect with colleagues across the organization.
