Solomon, Simona (1998) Impact on business performance by the organizational and technological infrastructures. Masters thesis, Concordia University.
In recent years firms have been undergoing significant transformations in an effort to increase efficiency, effectiveness, and innovation. Organizations are also searching for ways to become more competitive in their environment. In this study, the relationships between organizational infrastructure, technological infrastructure, and business performance are investigated. An organizational design planning framework is introduced that incorporates functional alignment between emerging organizational goals and technology characteristics. The study's findings do not indicate that strong organizational/technological linkages significantly impact the business performance of firms. The results, however, confirm past research that advocates the development of strong infrastructures. The study contributes to the current research by operationalizing the organizational and technological infrastructures and exploring the fit between the organizational and technological domains of firms.
