Abstract

This study examines the impact of downsizing/restructuring decisions and processes on perceptions of organisational effectiveness, together with perceived levels of organisational knowledge after the downsizing/restructuring event in successful and unsuccessful organisations. The study hypothesises that the impact of these decisions and processes on levels of organisational knowledge are a key determinant of effectiveness in successful post-downsizing and restructuring organisations. The findings show, however, that the significance of these variables is to be found in unsuccessful organisations, rather than their successful counterparts.
