We Live in a Time of Transition
September 30, 1996:
"One of MG Taylor's tenets over the past 20 years has been the idea of the collision with the future. In this model, the rapid rate of change in the environment crosses and eclipses the rate at which traditional organizations can respond to change. Once eclipsed, the traditional organization struggles, and unless it can turn around, collapses. To avoid collapse, these organizations must discover new options and new ways of work: philosophical, cultural, policy level and strategic."
