New Organizational Possibilities

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


Environmental conditions and the kinds of automation that prevailed in the past together with traditional strategies led to the emergence of organizational structures that are so well systematized in Henry Mintzberg’s model of basic configurations. However, in view of the changes in automation technology, in the environment, and in the organizational strategy as outlined in the previous chapters, organizational changes have occurred and are discussed by several authors as new management technologies, new structural possibilities, new change models and new management models. This chapter thus presents a brief description of these new organizational possibilities once some of them become part of or are utilized in firms that use the structure based on the Automated Bureaucracy, while others have a direct relationship with such new organizational format.
