What is the Law Of Diminishing Firms?

'What is the Law Of Diminishing Firms?' by Tony de Bree


According to the so-called ‘Law of Diminishing Firms’, the Laws of Moore and Metcalfe have rapidly increased each other’s enforcement.

Large traditional companies have often ageing and expensive technology infrastructure that keeps them from adopting new hardware, new software and standards at the required speed of the developments in the online platform economy around them and different customers they are servicing themselves.

As the online platform economy is developing and  online & offline markets become more efficient the organisational form (with its complexity) of the traditional large company becomes uneconomic, since companies can only exist and survive to the extend that they can create more customer value & avoid or reduce unnecessary costs more effectively than others.

Succesfull companies like some startups & scale-ups with the virtual organisation organisational design, use ICT to start, grow and scale their company online without becoming too big and too slow and thus have lower organisational costs than existing large and slow corporate companies.

The Law states that companies can become smaller and smaller by using ICT and transform themselves from a traditional corporate organisation into a virtual organisation. As actually most corporates were forced to do in 1 day because of the Covid-19 crisis and the obligation to work from home!
