Line vs staff positions in a company

  • Or Operations vs non-operations positions.

    What is the general definition of a line position?

    For a company that sells products, my understanding is that line positions are the those that are responsible for the P&L. Staff positions are those in support functions – accounting, human resource, legal, etc.

    What about companies that sells services - accounting, legal, consulting, etc.?

    Such definition is meaningless in today’s world anyway.
