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.
