Time, Chance, and Organizations

Time, Chance, and Organizations
Natural Selection in a Perilous Environment

Second Edition

January 1991 | 212 pages | CQ Press

"In this important and readable book, Kaufman develops a theory of organizational survival and demise that could fundamentally alter traditional explanations of organizational persistence and systems maintenance. Kaufman views randomness rather than rationality as the key factor in organizational survival. Kaufman has lifted the discourse on organizational behavior to a new level."

– David H. Rosenbloom
