The Innovating Organization

First Edition

June 2000 | 352 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
The Innovating Organization is a systematic, empirical study of the change in forms from traditional multi-divisional hierarchies to flatter, less rigid networks. The rich array of data generated by the eight current international case studies provides fresh insights into the network organization, and suggests new methodologies for organizational research. Coopers & Lybrand, BP, Unilever, Rabobank and Saab are amongst the companies surveyed.
