Final Comments

Part of the Contributions to Management Science book series (MANAGEMENT SC.)


This book does not present a chapter with “Conclusion” as its title. After all, the characterization of the Automated Bureaucracy and its variations that was made in the previous two chapters can be considered the conclusion of this work – in the broadest sense, taking into account the organizational structure approach and the vision of this author, a possible conclusion to several studies that have been conducted in recent years on changes in organizations. Thus, a specific chapter dealing with conclusions is not necessary. Some final comments, however, should be made to clarify certain issues. Specifically, it can be made observations on the existence of the Automated Bureaucracy, its positive and negative aspects, the limitations of this study and its relation with other important topics in Management and Sociology studies.
