Description

The book presents the latest research and theory about evolutionary change in organizations. It brings together the work of organizational theorists who have challenged the orthodox adaptation views that prevailed until the beginning of the 1980s. It emphasizes multiple levels of change - distinguishing change at the intraorganizational level, the organizational level, the population level, and the community level. The book is organized in a way that gives order and coherence to what has been a diverse and multidisciplinary field. (The book had its inception at a conference held at the Stern School of Business, New York University, January 1992.)show more

Review quote

Organizations rise and fall. In between, they change-sometimes negligibly, sometimes gradually, sometimes radically. For the scholar who is interested in understanding the latest thinking on organizational evolution and change, this book is critically important. It presents fresh, insightful pieces from many of the leading thinkers on the topic. We can expect to find the Baum and Singh volume on a lot of desks, and represented in many reference lists, through the rest of the 90's. * Donald C. Hambrick, Columbia University *show more
