Belated Recognition for Work Flow Entrepreneurs: A Case of Selective Perception and Amnesia in Management ThoughtEntrepreneurship: Theory and Practice
Format of Original17 p.
AbstractRecent trends, such as reengineering, require work flow entrepreneurship. Important principles about these practices were recognized in post-World War II field research, but by the 1970s this work suffered neglect. Amnesia was caused by deeply held assumptions of scientific management, and by a search within business schools for academic legitimacy at the expense of praxis, which skewed the perspectives with which organizations were viewed.
