Why Do We Need Formal Organization?


What the words "formal organization" mean. Semantic ambiguity. The distinction between "formal" and "informal" organization. Examples of each. The tendency in the United States to be critical and apprehensive of formal organization. Factors that make this so: a detailed discussion of the factors in American national attitudes which militate against formal organization. Public and private-owned enterprises: different organizations? A discussion of how men can co-operate effectively. Will this work in a large organization? The theory of organization. Arranging the mechanics of a system vs. ensuring that the individuals involved are able and willing to behave in a certain way. The factors of human motivation and human behaviour. Designing human system of organization. Structure and the way you man that structure are two separate problems. Eliminating double-talk in the use of the word organization.
