Previous researchers have ignored the contingent effects of the interaction between structural differentiation and changes in the president on reorganization.  In the present research, the researcher employed structural contingency theory, neglected in recent organizational studies, to examine the interactions between two important variables, structural differentiation and changes in the president in their relationship with an important form of change, administrative reorganization.  Results indicated that changes in the president and structural differentiation interact to significantly influence administrative reorganization.
