  7. "In formal organizations mutual positive associations exist . . . between rational elements" (793)Udy, Stanley H., Jr. - 'Bureaucracy' and 'rationality' in Weber's organization theory, 1959 - 4 Variables

    "Seven of Max Weber's ideal-typical specifications for 'rational bureaucracy' are reformulated as a system of three 'bureaucratic' and four 'rational' variables. It is proposed that (a) bureaucratic variables are positively associated; (b) rational variables are positively associated; but that (c) rational variables are negatively associated with bureaucratic variables." Hypotheses are supported.
