Abstract:

This is a Phase 2 report of a three-year study to develop research- based criteria for the design of new forms of organization or the planned change of existing organizations. The objective is to make a further specification of steps in the organizational design process based on recent or ongoing organizational design efforts, to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of different strategies of organizational design, and to specify the manner in which different conceptual formulations can be used as tools in different parts of the design process. As a basis for specifying concepts and processes, case studies of organizational design in four federal agencies, three industrial companies, and three educational and research institutions are developed and drawn upon.
