Write a Research Paper within Organizational Research and Theory.
1. Environments shape organizations. In turn, organizations also shape the environments in which they interact. Organizations, in part, also choose which environments they enter and exit, choose which coalitions are most desirable, and determine the contexts in which they function. Write a paper that draws from the professional literature to address these issues and explains how organizations relate strategically to their environments.
2. All organizations must secure a continuing supply of resources from their environments. The initial mix of resources mobilized when an organization is created is critical as these resources constitute a structural pattern that tends to persist and is imprinted on organizational members. Develop a paper that addresses these issues; explains how all organizations compete for resources, which describes the consequences and costs of obtaining resources; and how resource attainment varies with the type of organization and environment, as well as with the organization's stage of development.
3. Organizations utilize lateral relationships as legitimate avenues of information, and influence flows constitute the new generation of organizational forms. Write a paper that explains the number of different lateral structural arrangements in use in organizations, excluding project teams, matrix structures, organic systems, and professional organizations.
4. A topic you select with the consent of your professor.
