Dimensions of Organizational Task Environments.
Dess, Gregory G.; Beard, Donald W.
Administrative Science Quarterly, v29 n1 p52-73 Mar 1984
Reducing Aldrich's codification of organizational task environments from six to three dimensions--munificence (capacity), complexity (homogeneity-heterogeneity, concentration-dispersion), and dynamism (stability-instability, turbulence), the authors use interim and factor analytical techniques to explore each dimension's viability and draw implications for theories about organization-environment relationships.
