The Rondell Data Corporation considers centralization and decentralization which pertains to the hierarchical level at which decisions are made. In a mechanistic design, the structure is centralized, whereas an organic design uses decentralized decision making. This case presents an excellent opportunity to have the class apply the concepts of mechanistic and organic designs, centralization and decentralization, and formal and informal organizations as described in the text. Use the following three questions to guide the discussion and analysis.
1. Describe the management style at Rondell Data Corporation.
2. Would you classify Rondell Data Corporation as a mechanistic or organic design?
3. What challenges does Rondell face?
