The study presents a new aspect of organizational power system. The basic tendency in a power system is to control all the connections of organizational social relations. This aim however is unrealistic. Many of the relations of a social system are out of control. The uncontrollable relations result in uncertainty and risk for power. It cannot grasp many informal relations, the thoughts of people, etc. The article deals with chains of organizational causes and effects, for the transparency of these relations is important for the apex of power. The second part of the study points out the very different characteristics of the top and the other parts of the system of power. After the study of the differences between the two parts an analysis of trust in the power mechanism as a key relation in the organizations is given. Trust is not an ethical category, but one of power. So trust can be understood as a key word in the logic of power.
