New publication: The Impact of Organizational Structure on Internal and External Integration: An empirical, cross-regional assessment

Relationships are examined across Western and East Asian environments using data collected from 238 manufacturing plants in eight countries. We find that structural features have differing impacts on cross-functional, supplier, and customer integration, and these effects vary across geographical regions.
