p. 1176. Where do we go from here?locked

  • Mary Jo Hatch

Abstract

‘Where do we go from here?’ provides some thoughts on the future of organizations and organizing. In the modern world, the mix-and-match pastiche of work conditions will cause constant reshaping of organizations. The recognition that whole human beings (with both self-interest and interests in society) interact with organizations will lead to a shift in organizational emphasis to make them more concerned with ethics than profits. Organizing will continue on the internet, and cultural processes will follow into cyberspace. Perhaps these changes will all be due to changes in our perceptions: Whatever happens, humanity will only continue to thrive if it continues organizing.
