  9. "Among organizations where rewards are distributed, familial reciprocal forms tend to be characterized by distribution on the basis of gross participation only" (109)Udy, Stanley H., Jr. - Organization of work: a comparative analysis of production among nonindustr..., 1959 - 2 Variables

    This book is a comparative study of the ways in which work is organized among non-industrial societies in the production of material goods. Two general hypotheses guide the author's work: (1) The structure of any work organization is influenced by both techonological processes and social setting, and (2) The structure of any reward system is influenced by the characteristics of the work organization, the social setting, and the limits imposed by features of the technological processes. Several predictions are presented and all are supported.
