Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

`The contributors have collectively put forward new theories of change and management which have been informed by various programmes of research. A notable resource for both researchers and practitioners as they continue to understand the cross-disciplinary nature of the dialogue on organizations′ - Leadership and Organization Development Journal

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.
