Inorder to examine the effectiveness of the organic organisational structure, five of the articleshave been summarised in the context of annotated bibliography below. Thus, this study is aimedto explore the statement ‘In today’s turbulent environment only organic organisational structureare effective’.Article 1:Hinrichs, G. 2009. Organic Organisational Design.

In addition to this, technological and innovation aspects are alsoclearly privileged by the organic structure that makes knowledge flow more flexible andspontaneous.For the research purpose data has been collected from the universe of Spanish industriescompanies excluding micro business and energy sectors that have less than 10 workers. Theresearch is descriptive that researched with various variables and a conceptual model. Theresearch has concluded that effectiveness of organic structure design is inevitable in improvingthe performance and technological innovation of the organisation apart from the effect oflocation in an industrial district. The article is somehow weak in relating different facts at thesame time. It has been suggested that article should be more focused on the structural design.Article 3: Sobotkiewicz, D. 2013.
