Organizations have become an increasingly major feature in people's lives, affecting every type of activity. Interest in studying them has also grown, along with a perceived requirement to make them more effective and competitive. In this introductory text, Richard Butler explores existing concepts of organizational design and relates them to the latest theories about strategic decision-making. Drawing on international work and on critical-incident case studies from recent research, he offers a new model of the way the structure of an organization shapes key decision-making factors within it. "Designing Organizations" aims to provide a tool for students of strategic management theory and organizational behaviour. This book is intended to be of interest to lecturers and students of strategic management and organizational behaviour.
