The recent decade’s research on organizational forms has gained important headway in converging upon a few particularly important causes of the new forms that have been observed. Yet, most studies offer no explicit definition of "organizational form," and ignore the need to establish what should count as a "new form." In order to advance this research, the present paper therefore aims to provide a preliminary definition of organizational form, developed along the lines of organizational economics. A typology is provided that allows identification of alternative forms of organizing in terms of distinct architectures (topology plus dynamic rules) and a corresponding level of delegation of decision rights.
