What Can the Architectural and Network Approaches to Organization Design Learn from One Another?


Everyone is welcome!

 

Short Abstract
In addition to their shared concern with improving organizational functioning and performance, the architectural and network approaches to organization design both focus on the social relationships that connect co-workers, subordinates, and superiors. Where they differ most importantly is with respect to the relationships that they prioritize. In the former case it is the reporting relationship while with the latter any of several affective or instrumental relationships are the primary concern. In this talk I’ll use a well-known design case to highlight the most important areas of agreement and conceptual overlap between the two design approaches  and also highlight areas where future research might inform both perspectives.
