Configurations of strategy and structure: Towards a synthesis

Configurations of strategy and structure: Towards a synthesis There already exists a substantial body of work dealing with the relationships between strategy and structure. But most of the studies oversimplify things by focusing mainly on diversification and divisionalization. Recent literature has derived more complex and integrated views of strategy and structure, much of it isolating common types, ‘gestalts’, or configurations. This paper suggests a new approach for examining the relationships between strategy and structure and proposes some functional linkages between several complex strategic and structural configurations. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Strategic Management Journal Wiley

Abstract

There already exists a substantial body of work dealing with the relationships between strategy and structure. But most of the studies oversimplify things by focusing mainly on diversification and divisionalization. Recent literature has derived more complex and integrated views of strategy and structure, much of it isolating common types, ‘gestalts’, or configurations. This paper suggests a new approach for examining the relationships between strategy and structure and proposes some functional linkages between several complex strategic and structural configurations.
