Abstract:

Empirical studies of formal dimensions of organization structure have sought to discover patterns of association between factors that lead to increases in organization complexity. Sixty-eight years in the evolution of a formal organization were studied to determine the effects of organizational size on organizational complexity across time. The Kolmogorov-Smirnov statistic was used to test whether an expected rank-frequency distribution of roles could predict observed rank-frequency distributions. Modified author abstract
