Toward a Framework of Organizational Effectiveness.
Pennings, Johannes M.; Goodman, Paul S.
A new conceptual framework of organizational effectiveness is described. The framework has three distinctive features: (a) It provides a definition of organizational effectiveness built around the concepts of outcomes, constraints, and referents; (b) it delineates three subsystems on which effectiveness, as well as relevant determinants, can be assessed; and (c) it develops the notion of internal and external constituencies that affect the definition of effectiveness.
