A classification of structural inertia: Variations in structural response

Structurally inert firms suffer elevated failure risks in the face of environmental change because inertia makes it difficult to keep pace with the speed of such change. Renewing recent debates on inertia and on structure, in this paper we examine the specifics of the make-up of structural inertia in the context of failure hazards—the measurable survival risks associated with failure. Developing a classification of structural inertia, we test a sample of firms listed on the Taiwanese Security Exchange across 52 industries to develop a convention on organizational structure, ratifying that structural inertia differs by type in incorporating failure hazards. Findings differentiate between and elaborate the validating environmental and resource conditions for these different categories, detailing the extent to which failure hazards are related to the specifics of each type. This variation is helpful in explaining better why, despite conditions leading to failure, inert organizations continue to thrive over time. Discussing this logic addresses the narrow representation of structural inertia and limitations to its theoretical development over several decades. It also shows that traditional organizational ecology measures can be legitimately underplayed in organizations dealing with increased failure hazards in favor of the characteristics of different structural inertia types.

DOI: This paper builds an economic model of the relationship between influence activity and resistance to change in organizations. I show that influence activity can create harmful barriers to change and that the influence costs of change are positively related to the firm's prospects. The model rationalizes the widely held view that firms often must endure a survival-threatening crisis before meaningful change can be achieved.

Structural Inertia and Organizational Change Revisited III: The Evolution of Organizational Inertia

This study provides an empirical test of Hannan and Freeman's theory of structural inertia. We examined the changes organizations undertook in response to a major environmental change. In addition, we examined the effects of the organizational changes on organizational survival. Contrary to inertia theory predictions, discontinuous environmental change was not associated with an increased probability of organizational change. Further, organizational change was unrelated to an organization's chances of survival. We evaluate inertia theory in light of these findings and suggest a revised formulation of the concept of inertia. Learn About the New eReader.

We use information technology and tools to increase productivity and facilitate new forms of scholarship. Theory and research on organization-environment relations from a population ecology perspective have been based on the assumption that inertial pressures on structure are strong. This paper attempts to clarify the meaning of structural inertia and to derive propositions about structural inertia from an explicit evolutionary model. The proposed theory treats high levels of structural inertia as a consequence of a selection process rather than as a precondition for selection.

Structural Inertia and Organizational Change Revisited III: The Evolution of Organizational Inertia

Building on a formal theory of the structural aspects of organizational change initiated in Hannan, Polos, and Carroll a, b , this paper focuses on structural inertia. We define inertia as a persistent organizational resistance to changing architectural features. We examine the evolutionary consequences of architectural inertia.

Однако он не смог удержаться от вопроса: - Сколько же вы хотите за оба экземпляра. - Двадцать миллионов американских долларов. Почти столько же поставил Нуматака. - Двадцать миллионов? - повторил он с притворным ужасом.  - Это уму непостижимо.

Если мистер Хейл не образумится, снайперы должны быть готовы стрелять на поражение. Всю ответственность я беру на. Быстрее. Хейл выслушал все это, не сдвинувшись с места и не веря своим ушам. Хватка на горле Сьюзан слегка ослабла. Стратмор выключил телефон и сунул его за пояс.

Он решительно поднял трубку, снова набрал номер и прислонился к стене. Послышались гудки. Беккер разглядывал зал. Один гудок… два… три… Внезапно он увидел нечто, заставившее его бросить трубку.

Ангел, подумал. Ему захотелось увидеть ее глаза, он надеялся найти в них избавление. Но в них была только смерть. Смерть ее веры в .

В руке он сжимал ключ, взятый из лаборатории систем безопасности. Чатрукьян опустился на колени, вставил ключ в едва заметную скважину и повернул. Внизу что-то щелкнуло.

 Куда мы едем. Парень расплылся в широкой улыбке. - А то ты не знаешь.

Все внезапно осложнилось, пошло совсем не так, как он рассчитывал. Мелкая любезность, которую он оказал Стратмору, забрав личные вещи Танкадо, вылилась в поиски таинственного кольца, как в известной игре, где нужно находить спрятанные предметы. Дэвид только что позвонил Стратмору и рассказал о немецком туристе.
