Once again: what, when, how and why: A prospectus for research in organizational improvisation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In this final chapter we will present a research prospectus for organizational improvisation. Before turning to the future, however, we will discuss the present, in order to uncover why improvisation now seems to be blooming as a ‘proper’ research topic. To do so, we will briefly contrast a traditional, inherited view on management and organization from where improvisation is almost absent, with an emergent view, where improvisation can be considered as a relevant property of adaptive organizations.
