Development of a Scale to Assess Adequacy of Organizational Structure


  • Shanti Suman


The present study was undertaken to construct and validate a scale to assess the adequacy of organization structure. After studying each component of the organizational structure and discussion with experts, 21 items were selected and 5-point Likert-type scale was prepared. The scale was administered to 240 employees working in a well known production organization. The scale has desirable psychometric properties, including high internal consistency, reliability and construct validity. The scale satisfactorily validates with certain criterion measures, such as organizational commitment, job satisfaction and work motivation.
