Praise from business leaders for Managing the Evolving Corporation "As we chart our way through the most turbulent sea change in business since the industrial revolution, very few books will appear that provide us with navigational aids. Langdon Morris has written one of them. Managing the Evolving Corporation is likely to become required reading for those who intend to lead American business into the 21st century. Along with Peter Senge and Meg Wheatley, Langdon Morris opens a door to the future. Perhaps most important, Managing the Evolving Corporation provides us with maps and navigational instruments that will take us from where we are to where we need to be." Dean W. Engel Managing Partner, The East West Group Co-author of Global Human Resource Development "Langdon Morris speaks the new language of the knowledge architect. This leading edge book forces you outside the nine dots to new targets for solutions." William L. Miller, Ph.D. Director, Research and Development Steelcase North America "This book is exciting and useful for leaders and learners in organizations because it provides a clear planning process to effect institutional and personal change." Faith Gabelnick, Ph.D. Provost and Dean of the Faculty Mills College "Managing the Evolving Corporation is a clear, understandable, and important book for executives, designers, and technologists. It elegantly defines a new integration of computer technology and interior architecture to support the knowledge workers whose productivity is so essential to success in today's competitive global markets. Langdon Morris shows us the future, and how to get there." Piero Patri Fellow, American Institute of Architects President, Patri.Burlage.Merker Architecture, Planning, Interior Design

LangdonMorris shows that we’re in the midst of an economic revolutionas serious and far-reaching as the shift to industrialism. The keysto success are no longer control of raw materials, machines, orpeople, because the corporations that depend on hierarchical modelsof command and control are too slow to respond to change, andtoday’s marketplace leaves them in the dust. What’s thealternative? Manage the flow of information to enable all workersto make the best decisions themselves.

  • Design powerful real time information systems
  • Structure the work place to maximize responsiveness
