In the previous chapter we have described the DYCORP framework for studying organizational performance under dynamic and interactive environment. This formal framework is powerful and enables us to systematically examine, from a theoretical perspective, the effect of multiple important factors including stress, organizational design, and task environment on the performance of organizations as discussed in the organizational literature. The formal framework can also generate a series of internally consistent propositions that can be later tested in the real world.
