The Relation Between Decentralised Structure, Budgetary Participation and Organisational Commitment: The Moderating Role of Managers' Value Orientation Towards Innovation
Reports the results of a study which investigated the moderating role of managers' value orientation towards innovation (VOI) on the relationships between managers' organisational commitment and two management control features - decentralised organisational structure and budgetary participation. Data for the study were collected from 116 managers in manufacturing firms. The results indicate that managers' VOI has a significant moderating effect on the relationships between the two management control features and managers' organisational commitment. The results reveal that the relationships are stronger for managers with high VOI than for managers with low VOI. These results have implications for enhancing managers' organisational commitment through the design of management control systems appropriate for the extent of innovative work values promoted by organisations.
