Abstract

This paper empirically investigates how organizational adaptation to interdependence shocks is influenced by “integrators”. These are formally mandated managerial roles meant to promote coordination across specialized but interdependent organizational sub-units without relying on formal authority. While much has been learned about how integrators promote steady state coordination within a known pattern of interdependence, less is known about their impact on organizational adaptation when the pattern of interdependence itself changes. We discuss mechanisms by which integrators may also be useful in such situations, and test our hypotheses in the context of a regulatory shock that affected the IVF clinics sector in the UK.
