Would you by chance be referring to German political economist and
sociologist Maximilian WEBER?s (April 21, 1864 ? June 14, 1920)
characteristics of the ideal bureaucracy?
[note: in German his surname is often pronounced ?ve-bar? or ?ve-ba?
which, if my suspicions are correct, might account for your confusion]
If so, here is the simple answer to your question:
?Max Weber identified six basic characteristics or elements of the
ideal bureaucracy. These include: specialization, hierarchy of
offices, rules and regulations, technical competence, impersonality,
and formal written communications.?
