Abstract:

This study is a first empirical application of Moore and Hagas probabilistic baseline generator of role differentiation in formal organizations. It employed time series data on a single sample to investigate the effects of variables other than organization growth on the evolution of organization complexity under an assumption that both members and roles were interchangeable. The resulting statistic was a percentile role differentiation indicator that was reliable for organization sizes above approximately 75. The theoretical interest and practical organizational auditing utility of the PRDI are discussed.
