But how *does* that operation get run, precisely? Management involves lots of hard work -- planning, scheduling, negotiating with suppliers, contractors, customers, etc. Replacing a set of managers with, say, a group of factory workers would, by itself, change relatively little; they'd be under the same pressures, and might have the same temptation to exploit other workers in order to meet their annual target.
