The Chapter focuses on the relationships between organisation, technology and industrial structure. The organisation of a firm comes to depend on the trade-off between the decisions to either produce production modules internally or to buy them externally. In this way, organisational structure and technological decisions are intrinsically related, as firms have the choice of producing a module internally by exploring a technological landscape that is corrugated and complex, or of outsourcing it to a more efficient supplier. In so doing, the dimension of the firm (and the industrial dynamics) is endogenously determined by both the internal and the external relationships.

Abstract

The Chapter focuses on the relationships between organisation, technology and industrial structure. The organisation of a firm comes to depend on the trade-off between the decisions to either produce production modules internally or to buy them externally. In this way, organisational structure and technological decisions are intrinsically related, as firms have the choice of producing a module internally by exploring a technological landscape that is corrugated and complex, or of outsourcing it to a more efficient supplier. In so doing, the dimension of the firm (and the industrial dynamics) is endogenously determined by both the internal and the external relationships.
