Non-participation : the management view?

Marchington, Mick and Loveridge, Ray (1979) Non-participation : the management view? Journal of Management Studies, 16 (2). pp. 171-184.


The article identifies constraints that limit employee participation in management's decision-making process. Determinants of participation include: the propensity to participate or workers' interest in being involved in the shared decision-making activities; the organization's participation potential which relates to structural and situational factors; and management's acceptance of workers' participation despite the time pressures and lack of expertise among employees which could delay strategic decisions. Forms of participation on the shop floor can range from job control to joint consultation or employee ownership.
