Variations in Organization Science by Joel Baum

Book Description

'Given the currency of the issues and the status of the contributors, this book will be an important foundational source for faculty and doctoral students in the organizations sciences' - Michael Tushman, Harvard University Variations in Organization Science celebrates Donald T Campbell's many contributions to organization science, presenting new variations which stem directly from his work. Contributing authors review and extend Campbell's theories in four major areas: blind variation, selection and retention especially inside firms; multilevel co-evolution in organizational parts and wholes; process level analysis and modelling epistemology and methodology. The book includes an unusual appendix, Donald T Campbell's curriculum vitae.
