ORGANIZATIONAL THEORIES 2
Introduction
The field of organizational theory is marked by fragmented knowledge with numerous
competing theories of organization. Critically analyze how theories of agencies and determinists
help us understand our organizational actions. Can these theories be reconciled into a common
theory? There are several related concepts in organizational theories to explain the behavior of
institutions or individuals. You wanted to explain also how the person interacts, and the company
objectives are achieved. This paper looks at the theory of strategic choice and determinism
theories. The two classes try to explain the organization's behavior and character when
determining its activities. However, theoretical concepts generate wars. Organizations do not
know what their organization's theory should be about. The discussion is also intended to help
determine if four theories are reconciled and whether a single organization exists. The results are
a summary of the theories and a section on analysis.
The theory of resource dependency suggests that companies should maximize their
success. The power of the organization comes from the available resources. In a different light,
the dependency theory on resources relies on power dynamics that change the organization's
structure and behavior. In addition, the article identifies three elements of the theory of resource
dependence. The first part recognized organizations as external and internal coalitions. Social
exchanges have created these coalitions to encourage and control behavior. Second,
organizational survival depends on scarce and appreciated resources for the environment.
Finally, organizations should take over the resources to rely on others. Furthermore, the third
assumption indicates that the resources are controlled by organizations, which take advantage of
the dependence of other companies.
