    The quasi-matrix organizational structure of a large, geographically decentralized, national research agency fits the model of differentiation-integration described by Lawrence and Lorsch [4], [5]. In order to operate effectively within the broad agricultural research environment, the subparts of the agency are highly differentiated. Line managers achieve basic organizational integration, and a pr... View full abstract»
