Read and reflect on the case study about Sony on page 119 of the course textbook. Consider the CEO’s reorganization. What environmental constructs were involved? Why did the CEO have to adapt, control, and reduce uncertainty? Identify the mechanistic versus organic structures and how contingency theory was or was not applied in this case study.
