Swarm behaviour for companies

When I read articles about swarm behaviour, I wonder if the same principles could be applied to companies to eliminate all management positions. Nobody would be in charge and nobody would fully appreciate the big picture because the big picture would involve every single individual. Defining the rules would be difficult at ground level, though. I wonder how the information flow would go through the organisation and whether things like hires and fires would start happening organically or even higher level stuff like mergers.

PS - I'd bet some higher-level decisions would require more cooperation.
PPS - I'd still like to see it attempted.
