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.
