Abstract

The implementation of new control systems governed by a rational-technical logic often produces contrary responses due to the underlying value and belief structures lodged within prevailing control systems, task and hierarchy. This note empirically examines this discordance within the context of perceived managerial benefits to ZBB implementation. Several prescriptive implications are offered for the design of systems change.
