Abstract: Problems faced by human groups according with Organization Theory can be summarized as the search for an equilibrium between the transmission of the information necessary in order for teams to raise their efficiency, and the increase in costs that this entails. The fact that one of the proposed solutions to this problem is the use of slack resources allows us to evaluate the organizational design that has been put into practice by reference to the efficiency levels obtained.To that end, and using Data Envelopment Analysis, we have determined the efficiency of the professional soccer teams that make-up the Spanish First Division during the seasons covered by the period 1998-2004.
