DEFI a le plaisir de vous annoncer la parution du dernier livre de Jean-Luc Moriceau The Magic of Organization, co-édité avec notre collègue Hugo Letiche (Professeur invité à IMT-BS et Leicester) et Stephen Linstead (The York Management School, University of York), aux éditions Edward Elgar.
La couverture est de Terrence Letiche doctorant de IMT-BS.
The Magic of Organization looks at our economy and its dependence on magic, as success depends on innovation and creativity to produce the unexpected and amazing; but perhaps also the bogus and deceitful. Exposing the unpredictability of magic, the book reveals clear links between magic and uncontrollable and non-linear ways of organizing. Chapters discuss the double-edged sword of magic: while organizations, economies and finance depend on magical thought and actions for inspiration and surprise, they also fear them; what if the magic is real?
With its clarity on how the turn-to-ontology in anthropology is significant for organizational studies, this book will be an illuminating read for students of creativity and innovation.
