We are living in the making of a revolution in the study and practice of organizations. The mechanistic principles that have guided our analysis of organizations are being replaced by those of an electronic and intertwined earth.

Students are challenged to see and think anew—to transcend the constraints of traditional assumptions of organizations and develop more creative approaches for studying and changing organizations.
