INFLUENCES OF CULTURE AND STRUCTURE ON EFFICACY: ROLE OF STRUCTURE
The influences of corporate culture and corporate structure on firm efficacy have been investigated in prior studies. However, none of them have examined the causal linkages in a combined research model. Especially, they have also not explored the mediation of corporate structure in effect of corporate culture on firm efficacy. The current research applied regression analyses to study the causal associations in a suggested combined model. It also scrutinized how corporate structure interferes between corporate culture and firm efficacy. The empirical results reveal corporate culture makes statistically significant effects on corporate structure as well as on firm efficacy; while corporate structure is also evidenced to be an important determinant of firm efficacy. The effect of corporate culture on firm efficacy is significantly interceded by corporate structures. The current work offers some implications on how executives should accept suitable corporate structures facing diverse kinds of corporate culture, so that they can obtain better firm efficacy.
