This study attempts to examine the psychometric properties of the organizational structure construct, which integrates four subscalescentralized decision making, centralized hierarchy of authority, formalized job codification, and formalized rule observation using a Malay language version of the instrument developed by Hage & Aiken (1967). A priori proposition was made that organizational structure could be explained by the four aforementioned factors. SPSS version 14 and AMOS 16 were used to analyze the data. The results supported the hypothesis of the study that organizational structure can be measured by the four theorized factors. The findings also showed acceptable internal consistency reliability for the overall and the four specific subscales of organizational structure factor. Based on the results, it can be concluded that the Malay-translated version of the Hage and Aiken's (1967) measure can be a useful and appropriate tool in assessing the organizational structure construct.
