This paper will examine the effect on organizational structure and constituent relationships posed by the technological discontinuity presented by e- commerce. The organization’s structural dimensions examined will be centralization, formalization, and specialization. We conclude that the higher the degree of e-commerce strategy adoption, the higher the degrees of organizational decentralization, formalization, and specialization.
