First published in 1961, The Management of Innovation is a business classic: one of the most influential books about business organizations ever published. Challenging the received wisdom that there is "one best way" to manage, it sounded the death knell of classical management theory and provided something lasting in its place: a way of looking at organizations that allowed for different contexts, different markets, and different rates of technological change. The book's famous typology of organizations as mechanistic vs. organic has proved timeless, as relevant today as more than thirty years ago. This edition includes a new preface by Tom Burns that situates the work in its historical and current contexts and offers his reflections, years later, on the ideas that changed the way people thought about organizations.

From the Back Cover:

The management of Innovation is one of the most influential books on organization theory and industrial sociology ever written. The main question it addresses--the relationship between an organization and its market and the technological environment--continues to preoccupy researchers and managers as innovation has even greater impact on organizational structures and competitiveness.

About the Author:


Tom Burns is Professor of Sociology, Retired, Edinburgh University.
