Vicious Circles in Organizations.
Masuch, Michael
Administrative Science Quarterly, v30 n1 p14-33 Mar 1985
After examining some elementary notions of action theory and cybernetics, this article analyzes the dynamics, clustering, and survival chances of vicious circles. It argues that the action perspective implies that many structural suboptimalities of organizations are caused by vicious circles. Eleven figures and 105 references are provided. (DCS)
