Drastic changes of the societies in the new century require new paradigm in every area of social science. Organizations study is not exception. This book illustrates the cutting edge of organizations study beyond the traditional approaches in management science and general management theory. With an interdisciplinary approach emphasizing systemic properties of organizations such as interaction, hierarchy, network and emergence, it covers dynamic aspects of organizational learning and evolution as well as the decision making function and information processing process.
