    ABSTRACT: In this article, we provide guidance for substantive researchers on the use of structural equation modeling in practice for theory testing and development. We present a comprehensive, two-step modeling approach that employs a series of nested models and sequential chi-square difference tests. We discuss the comparative advantages of this approach over a one-step approach. Considerations in specification, assessment of fit, and respecification of measurement models using confirmatory factor analysis are reviewed. As background to the two-step approach, the distinction between exploratory and confirmatory analysis, the distinction between complementary approaches for theory testing versus predictive application, and some developments in estimation methods also are discussed.

    ABSTRACT: A replication of the Aston study of organization structure, employing the original measurements, reports data secured from a sample of eighty-two British organizations. The replication confirms the tight nexus between specialization, standardization of procedures, paperwork, and vertical span expressed by the concept "structuring of activities." In contrast to the Aston study, centralization of decision making is found to be related negatively to structuring in a way that conforms closely to Webers description of the bureaucratic mode of administrative control. Further examination of the replication results draws attention to problems in carrying forward the Aston program of comparative organizational research, problems both of a theoretical and operational nature.
