Abstract : A 'see-saw' model of organizational effectiveness was designed as a result of a systems analysis of previously collected data describing organizational climates in research and development organizations. The model distinguishes between variables that have a generally increasing or decreasing effect on both creativity and productivity, and variables that have a differential effect in the sense that they increase creativity at the expense of productivity or vice versa.
