Organizational Size, Complexity, and Formalization

Abstract

The relationships between organizational size and several measures of complexity and formalization are examined using data from 75 organizations. The findings suggest that there is at best only a weak relationship between size and structural characteristics. It is suggested that size should not be taken as an indicator of organizational structure. Size may be important, however, as a factor in morale and in interorganizational relations.
