Burke, M. E.; Tulett, Karen
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v50 n4 p380-81 Apr 1 1999
Discusses the contingency approach to organizational design, information processing as a critical contingent of design, and use of organismic and mechanistic structures within an independent merchant bank. Proposes that a more appropriate model is needed which takes into account the changing nature of information processing and is flexible enough to allow for changes in human behavior patterns. (AEF)
