Abstract or Description

The conceptual framework of organizational effectiveness developed in this paper is an attempt to provide new insights into organizational theory and to stimulate new lines of research. The various perspectives found in recent literature on organizational effectiveness need to be integrated and their research strategies and inconsistencies reconciled. This paper develops a framework designed to accomplish that. Furthermore, a framework should reflect the complex and dynamic nature of organizations as well as be sufficiently specific to facilitate evaluation.
