These elements of structure affect the degree to which the company is effective and innovative as well as employee attitudes and behaviors at work. Despite these downsides, however, mechanistic structures have advantages when the environment is more stable. An example of this is the study done by Fitts and Joneswho studied the most effective configuration of control knobs to be used in aircraft cockpits. Because centralized organizations assign decision-making responsibility to higher-level managers, they place greater demands on the judgment capabilities of CEOs and other high-level managers.
