Research on the Future of Organizations

Jan Jonker (right) and Marco de Witte (left) from the Nijmegen School of Management in The Netherlands have started an exciting experiment: They want to write a book on the future of organizations. You might ask, what is exciting about writing a book? Well, they have decided not to write it on their own but in a collaborative project: everybody who is interested and competent can contribute to the book. This is what they write about their project:

"This project was set out with the ambition to provide a coherent and innovative line of thinking that provides direction for the future of organizational development. We want to develop this line of thinking in a book based on input by MBA students and researchers from around the world.

Organizations are in the midst of the process of transformation moving away form functional structures towards a portfolio of processes and projects. This has unforeseen impacts on the emerging change."
