About this title


This work examines the resurgence of good organization as a key competitive factor, as experienced by firms in the 1990s. It argues that to be competitive during this period, it was no longer sufficient to have a well-structured strategic plan, and it was necessary to remove excessive hierarchy from the organization.


‘This work illustrates the fertile and healthy renewal of the link between research and the company. As of late, management has become aware of the vital necessity of drawing on research. For the author, this forward-looking and creative approach no longer pertains only to pure science, but also, and perhaps primarily, to the humanities and social sciences. Emmanuel Josserand has positioned himself at this very crossroads.’ Author: Bernard de Montmorillon, President of the University of Paris-IX Daupine, France

‘By providing detailed empirical analysis built on a solid theoretical base, this book advances our ability to conceptualize and then manage the ever increasing complexity of those fascinating adventures that consist of harnessing the efforts of thousands of proudly independent individuals to the achievement of goals that exceed their abilities and enhance their lives, and that we call organizations.’ Author: J.C. Jarillo HEC, Université de Genéve, Switzerland

‘The book takes a logical and constructive approach, developing the argument through successive chapters to an integrated and comprehensive analysis. As a short, authoritative, and convincing analysis of the network form I believe the book has the potential to become regarded as definitive. The fact that it originates in France is if anything a strength of the work, since Europeans and particularly the French often have been more creative in the development of different forms of enterprise. I believe this book will find a ready paperback market if not as the set text on a range of management and organization undergraduate and postgraduate courses, then definitely as significant supplementary reading. It will be popular with research students, and will find a respected place in the research literature of organization studies.’ Author: Thomas Clarke, University of Technology, Sydney, Australia
