Abstract [en]

This article discusses the work of PR Lawrence and JW Lorsch on organizational design, specifically integration, differentiation and match with the environment. Their basic message is that there is not one single best way to manage and organize in all situations, but there must be a fit between an organization and its environment. This consideration is important to the continual renewal, stability and balance required for an organization's longevity. As in the previous articles, we look at the seminal study, describe how it is related to some of our field observations, and then draw some inferences from observations for management.
