The contingency theory of organizations is one of the core components of modern management thought. Contingency theory identifies which organizational structures are needed to fit the circumstances of each particular organization. Hence contingency theory offers a sophisticated type of advice to managers.
The contingency theory is solidly grounded in research in actual organizations. These organizations are drawn from widely differing settings, such as manufacturing, service, welfare, government and so on. They are located in many different countries of the world.
This book displays the theoretical strength and empirical grounding of contingency theory. It selects the 20 key articles from across this scattered literature and brings them together in one place.
The articles herein are set in their context by an introductory essay which reviews the field. It is written by one of the foremost contemporary experts on contingency theory, who is internationally known for being the contemporary "product champion" of contingency theory. This theory attracts considerable on-going scholarly attention and this collection of articles provides an authoritative statement of the paradigm.
