Abstract

El presente trabajo tiene como objetivo diseñar y validar escalas para medir diversos mecanismos de coordinación estructural, no estructural e informal. Los primeros están vinculados a puestos u órganos específicos, y nos referimos al diseño de redes, equipos de proyecto y desarrollo, y equipos de trabajo. Los mecanismos de coordinación no estructural sirven de complemento a los anteriores. En este grupo se encuentran la normalización de procesos de trabajo, de habilidades y de resultados. Por último, los mecanismos de carácter informal son el esfuerzo de socialización y la adaptación mutua. Tras la generación de una batería de 43 ítems, se han comprobado sus propiedades psicométricas: fiabilidad y validez -validez convergente y discriminante-. La muestra utilizada corresponde a 167 grandes empresas españolas. / The objective of this study is to design and validate scales for measuring several structural, non-structural and informal coordination mechanisms. The first group is primarily linked to managerial posts or specific bodies. This study focuses on the design of networks, project and development teams, and work teams. Non-structural coordination mechanisms do not characteristically create bodies or jobs, but complement them. For this group we design and validate other scales for measuring the regulation of work processes, skills and outcomes. Lastly, scales for mechanisms of an informal nature are provided for aspects such as the strive for socialization and mutual adaptation. After creating a group of 43 items, the reliability and validity (convergent and discriminant validity) of the items were verified. A sample of 167 large Spanish firms was used for the analysis.
