Management, Technology and Behavior of Work Groups.
Drake, Charles A.
This study examines the impact various variables associated with the technical structure of a work setting have on the potential relationship between supervisory style and the attitudes and behavior of industrial work groups. The research explores the assumption that supervision is an integral part of an organization and whatever characteristics the organization may have will influence the appropriate style of supervision. The research is based on an examination of 66 groups representing various task and technological systems in a large chemical company, including research, legal, patent, manufacturing, industrial relations, controllers, and business information services. The report contains a short review of the literature on the structure of influence within organizations. (NTIS)
