Identification in the Self-Managing Organization: Characteristics of Target and Tenure.
Barker, James R.; Tompkins, Phillip K.
Human Communication Research, v21 n2 p223-40 Dec 1994
Finds that workers in a large organization identified more strongly with their self-managing team than with their company and that long-term workers reported more identification with both their team and company than did short-term workers. Suggests that a concertive (or team-based) system of control is more powerful but less obtrusive than its bureaucratic predecessor. (SR)
