Abstract

Role conflict and role ambiguity were investigated in relation to structural and interpersonal variables. Role conflict was not related to either structural or interpersonal variables in a production/manufacturing environment, and to only interpersonal variables in a research and development environment. Role ambiguity was related to structural variables regardless of work environment.
