Review quote

"An excellent collection of essays providing an empirical study of high-technology organizations....The essays are clearly written, up-to-date, and well documented....The book provides clear discussion of a topic of importance to US competitiveness and is thus recommended for lower-division as well as upper-division and graduate collections."--Choice"Both the importance of the topic and the caliber of the contributions to this book are quite high. Technology clearly plays an increasingly important role in management and organization, and we still have much to learn about how to manage organizations for which technology is a driving force."--James W.
