Managing in Times of Disorder
Hypercompetitive Organizational Responses

Edited by:

Volume: 4

June 1998 | 584 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This book demonstrates that a far-reaching shift has occurred in the venture of competition, resulting in a new organizational paradigm, defined as hypercompetition. A complex fabric of new theoretical frameworks, models, strategies, organizational forms and interdisciplinary methods are introduced and explained in the book which addresses hypercompetitive environments in a radically new way, and reveals what is necessary for business survival in these chaotic times.
