10/19/09 Chapter 16 Alex Silkin Questions for Review 7. What are the behavioral implications of different organizational designs? Organization's structure has behavioral implications for each individual that are different, depending on their character. This is because different employees have their own personal needs, which are satisfied in particular ways. Thus, a high degree of work specialization will motivate an individual seeking the security of routine, but dissatisfy an employee with high needs for personal growth and diversity. Similarly, some individuals who like responsibility will be motivated by the high level of autonomy allowed by a large span of control and lack of centralization, while others, who like to be given precise directions, will want an opposite organizational design. As a result, in order for organizations to maximize the satisfaction and motivation of their employees, the management needs to seek staff whose individual characteristics match the organizational design.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
