Title: Information technology and the non-traditional organization: An exploratory study into accounting organizations
Abstract: The purpose of the present study was to broaden our understanding of the informational and other aspects of non-bureaucratic forms of organizing business. The bureaucratic organization has dominated the world of business organizations for more than a hundred years. With changes in organizational environments, the domination of the bureaucratic organization is challenged today. New organizational forms are suggested as the alternative to the bureaucracy, such as the networked organization and adhocracy. The knowledge of these alternative forms, however, is still meager. The role of information technology (IT) is particularly unclear. In order to fill this void, the present study was conducted. The study began with designing, on the basis of the literature reviewed, a model of the non-bureaucratic organization, called 'the non-traditional organization.' The central relationship in the model was that between IT and several structural, cultural and political dimensions. This relationship was reflected in the following research question: What is the relationship between IT and the dimensions of the non-traditional organization?
