Bureaucratic Orientation of the Organisation’s Management – A Structuring Factor
Purpose: The paper presents an attempt to identify a new structuring factor and determine its impact on the subsequent states of the organisational structure. Design/Methodology/Approach: In the course of the study, a critical analysis of literature reports was performed. Moreover, the results of the empirical research on the factors shaping the simplicity of the structure were also utilised in the study. Findings: Structural solutions also depend on the bureaucratic orientation of the management and the stronger the structure is, the more complex it is. Practical Implications: The so far underestimated role of the bureaucratic orientation of the management as a factor hindering the formation of rational structural solutions was pointed out. Originality/value: A new structuring factor has been identified. A new approach to the correctness (appropriateness) of the structural solution is proposed.
