Abstract or Summary
  • Managers play an important role in strategic decision making. One important objective of strategic leadership is that of linking the organization to its environment. In this paper we ask the question: To what degree are managers' external network contingent on organizational design, i.e. the internal characteristics of the organization? With the assumption that managers' networks are purposively created within the limits and the needs of the organization, we discuss what determines the range of network of managers. We find that size and vertical differentiation are the most important of the tested organizational characteristics, while horizontal differentiation had somewhat less influence. We did not find support for the hypothesis that administrative capacity contributes positively to manager networks. Our results indicate that to view organizational characteristics as conducive to managers network range is a fruitful approach.
