When you’re passionate about something.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
Still on the same subject, let’s move on to another book from my library. The next one is by Paul Roger Lawrence and Jay William Lorsch, “Organization and the Environment”. I have to warn you about something. The book titles become somewhat redundant for beginners in a field as vast and vague as organizational mechanics. As I was saying, it includes individual psychology, group psychology, sociology, anthropology, politics, neurology, and much more. Humans remain a complex and almost elusive being both in substance and in time.
That being said, these last words serve as an introduction to Lawrence and Lorsch’s book, in that it deals with the evolution of organizations by delving into the analysis of sources of conflict and their “default” means of resolution, experienced by the individuals and groups that make them up. It ends with a model demonstrating that the creation of a third player who provides some moderation becomes almost inevitable if the differences are too distant for the two dependent entities to collaborate.
This type of work makes it possible to cover an area of the research field that was perhaps exposed at that time. Nevertheless, the document is fairly well-referenced and gives the reader an impression of a model that seems fairly rigorous.
