Lutz, Frank W.
Administrative Science Quarterly, v27 n4 p653-69 Dec 1982
Part of a special issue on organizational research utilization, this article discusses loose coupling and "garbage can" theories of higher education administration, applies a political anthropological model of "anarchy without chaos" to three episodes in university administration, and concludes that universities are tightly coupled and loosely coupled in different aspects.
