The phenomenon of organization has existed since the origin of mankind, and written proverbs concerning leadership and administration go back more than 4000 years. Abstractly, organizations share fundamental qualities, like structure, division of labor, coordination, and collaboration. However, the ways in which such qualities materialize in practice, and the ways in which we think and theorize about how and why they materialize in specific cases, have changed over time and from context to context. In his talk, Kristian Kreiner will focus on the history of a human-centered organization theory which was introduced at CBS in the early 1950s. Its origins and subsequent development will testify to the ongoing intellectual strife between the CBS discipline.
