Abstract:

Within the past twenty years the field of organization theory, in attempting to delineate the determinants of organizational performance, has placed a great deal of attention on the relationships between organizational structure and such variables as size and technology. In this regard there is a great deal of controversy in the empirical literature, stemming from contradictory and inconclusive results. Some of the more recent literature suggests that the technology-organization performance relationship might be more appropriately assessed by focusing on the nature of managerial control processes, rather than on structure, as the link between technology and performance.
