A Study on the relationship between organizational structure and organizational effectiveness: the case of the korea water resources corporation (K-water)
Every organization strives to achieve its goal efficiently for their survival and development. Among a number of measures to improve an organization's effectiveness, reorganization is being used by many companies as an effective and active means. Reorganization has been inevitable in terms of internal and external environmental changes in the organizational operation. In particular, in public institutions, reorganization has been carried out to support changes in government policies and to enhance management efficiency actively. Moreover, public institutions are controlled annually by governments on budgets and the size of their workforce. Therefore, designing an organization by efficiently distributing limited resources continues to be one of the essential management processes. In the case of Korea, K-water reorganizes its organizational system annually in major and minor ways to efficiently use a limited workforce. K-water has tried to realize the integrated water resource management (IWRM) in each basin to more efficiently and systematically manage national water resources, introducing a regional head office system based on the river basin in January 2017. However, despite the large-scale reorganization in 2017, no empirical and objective research has been conducted on the reorganization results and effectiveness. Therefore, this study analyzes the relationship between the organizational structure and organizational effectiveness in K-water. As a result, it shows that the higher the formalization awareness, the higher the job satisfaction and organizational commitment increases. Besides, this study maintains that decentralization has a positive relationship with job satisfaction and organizational commitment. The findings could be a reference to employees responsible for designing their organizations in the future.
