Twenty-five organizations are ranked according to their degree of bureaucratization. The ranking is accomplished by the combination of scores on six dimensions of bureaucracy into a single Guttman scale of bureaucratization. This over-all degree of bureaucratization is then found to have a moderately strong association with an organizational concern with objects as opposed to ideas. Less association is found between degree of bureaucratization and the size of the organization, the number of departments or divisions in the organization, the nature of the official organizational goals, or the extent to which the organization is "people oriented."
