Session 1726 -
Organizational Structure and Innovation

Research integrating Simon’s (1947) Administrative Behavior, March and Simon’s (1958) Organizations, and Cyert and March’s (1963) A Behavioral Theory of the Firm has explored how organizational structure impacts decision-making by influencing exploratory behaviors with potentially innovative outcomes. While scholars have primarily focused on search and to a lesser extent evaluation as variables of interest, other decision-making steps as suggested by Simon (1947) - agenda setting and problem representation – have been relatively underexplored. This panel session examines the relationship between organizational structure and different steps in the decision-making process in the pursuit of organizational innovation. Drawing from experts, we seek to develop critical questions for future research, and discuss different research methodologies that scholars can employ to explore these questions.
