ABSTRACT
Studies of organizational characteristics predictive of managerial judgments of overall effectiveness of subordinate organizational units are reported. The findings are interpreted within the framework of a hierarchical model of criteria of effectiveness. Measurable organizational characteristics serve as operational, short-run substitutes for the more subjective, long-run ultimate criterion of organizational effectiveness. The general business and research and development models of criteria of organizational effectiveness show differences in ways consistent with the analyses of Woodward (1965) and Thompson (1967).
