Editorial Reviews

Review


"Organizations rise and fall. In between, they change--sometimes negligibly, sometimes gradually, sometimes radically. For the scholar who is interested in understanding the latest thinking on organizational evolution and change, this book is critically important. It presents fresh, insightful pieces from many of the leading thinkers on the topic. We can expect to find the Baum and Singh volume on a lot of desks, and represented in many reference lists, through the rest of the 90's.--Donald C. Hambrick, Columbia University


"Goes a long way toward integrating much of organizational studies."--Contemporary Sociology


"During the past decade, evolutionary theorizing has moved from the periphery to center stage in guiding work on organizations. This volume not only underscores this trend, but broadens and enriches it by examining the multiple, nested evolutionary systems--subunit, organization, population, organizational community--relevant to organizational change."--W. Richard Scott, Stanford University


"This is an excellent volume, full of exciting and impressive contributions from a broad range of top-notch scholars."--Walter W. Powell, University of Arizona


"The most intellectually vibrant and sophisticated collection of original works connecting evolution, organization theory, and change. Knowledgeable, timely, and wonderfully challenging."--Paul M. Hirsch, Northwestern University

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Dennis During on August 11, 2007
Format: Paperback
"Evolution" is not the right word for what Baum is talking about. "Learning" is. Evolution can take place among the population of, say, retail bakeries over time. They are started, they grow, they multiply outlets, they are absorbed by other entities, they close up shop. If a single organization changes, that is not usefully called evolution. It is LEARNING. What might be a mere semantic issue were it buried somewhere in the text, is a fairly reliable indicator of conceptual confusion in a chapter heading -- or a book title.
