Designing High-Trust Organizations

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review


    The specific problem considered in this paper is what are the key issues to consider for managers
    involved in designing high-trust organizations, a design problem still not properly explored. This
    paper intends to take the first step in filling this lacuna. In the paper, I first present the existing
    management and research literature on building high-trust organizations. Then I explore Alan Fox’s
    (1974) analysis of low-trust vs. high-trust dynamics which, I argue, may serve as a theoretically
    stronger basis for understanding the issues management have to consider when designing hightrust
