Some Remarks on Organizational Efficiencies
This chapter, mostly based on the work by Forrest and Orvis (Kybern Int J Cybern Syst Manag Sci 45:1308–1322, 2016), introduces two important principles of efficiency—management efficiency and organizational inefficiency. The former addresses the problem of how management efficiency can be achieved, while the latter investigates the structure of employees’ efforts and devotion toward realizing the mission of the organization. These results help to enrich the managerial understanding on what can be improved and what cannot.
