When used with a noun, the phrase as much/many/little/few as possible needs to ‘surround’ the noun, rather than be placed in front of it. For example:
NOT: We need to give employees as much as possible autonomy.
BUT: We need to give employees as much autonomy as possible.
Here are some additional correct examples:
PowerPoint slides should have as little text as possible.
We want to obtain as much information as possible.
Tell as few people as possible.
Tell as many people as possible.
