Abstract:The objective of this study is to design and validate scales for measuring several structural, non-structural and informal coordination mechanisms. The first group is primarily linked to managerial posts or specific bodies. This study focuses on the design of networks, project and development teams, and work teams. Non-structural coordination mechanisms do not characteristically create bodies or jobs, but complement them. For this group we design and validate other scales for measuring the regulation of work processes, skills and outcomes. Lastly, scales for mechanisms of an informal nature are provided for aspects such as the strive for socialization and mutual adaptation. After creating a group of 43 items, the reliability and validity (convergent and discriminant validity) of the items were verified. A sample of 167 large Spanish firms was used for the analysis.
