ESTRUCTURA ORGANIZACIONAL Y SUS PARÁMETROS DE DISEÑO: ANÁLISIS DESCRIPTIVO EN PYMES INDUSTRIALES DE BOGOTÁ

  • Diego Armando Marín Idarraga Profesor Asociado II, Universidad de Bogotá Jorge Tadeo Lozano Director del grupo de Investigación AdGeO Colombia
Palabras clave: Organización, estructura organizacional, re-diseño organizacional, ajuste estructural, parámetros de diseño organizacional

Resumen

El artículo recoge los fundamentos teóricos acerca de los parámetros de diseño de la estructura de la organización, en el marco de la contingencia estructural, y da cuenta de la forma como las empresas están asumiendo eventos de re-estructuración. Se realiza un estudio de tipo descriptivo en una muestra de 92 pymes manufactureras de Bogotá. Los resultados demuestran que: a) el re-diseño organizacional no atiende propiamente a un ejercicio formal y sistemático a partir de la estrategia, b) el ajuste estructural con el entorno se da de manera parcial y c) la re-estructuración, cuando ocurre, simplemente responde a maniobras de traslación, eliminación o creación de cargos tomando como único referente el organigrama.
