entirely loose Weick 2001 43 5 CONNECTIONS OFVARIABLE STRENGTHPRODUCE AMBIGUITY I used to think that running an organization was equivalent to.
conducting a symphony orchestra But I don t think that s quite it it s more like jazz There is more improvisation Warren Bennis 5 Connections of variablestrength produce ambiguity What is ambiguity .
According to Weick 2001 he sees ambiguityslows down communication feedback creates more learning difficulty andincrease the number of people giving upand quitting It is normally found in.
changing complex environments non routine tasks and networks with denseinterdependencies p 44 5 Connections of variablestrength produce ambiguity.
What is ambiguity Organizations dislike ambiguity determination delegation anddifferentiation because each one isassociated with loose connections which is.
a form of ambiguity Weick 2001 44 Loose connections are a source ofambiguity 1 Nature of problem 2 Information.

stabilized by action Action can simplify environments can makeenvironments more orderly can createlinkage and can construct feedback p 50 Comparison between Loosely.
