Two trends are evident in the field of social work. On the one hand, a trend toward centralization under one board of directors and one executive inevitably leads to mechanization and to the granting of too much power over many human beings to a few people. On the other hand, a trend toward the continued maintenance or the creation of separate smaller units have the possibility of dealing with every client as an individual, and which distribute power among several boards and several executives.
