Variations in Organization Science celebrates Donald T Campbell′s many contributions to organization science, presenting new variations which stem directly from his work. Contributing authors review and extend Campbell′s theories in four major areas: blind variation, selection and retention especially inside firms; multilevel co-evolution in organizational parts and wholes; process level analysis and modeling epistemology and methodology. The book includes an unusual appendix, Donald T Campbell′s curriculum vitae.
