From Added Values to Augmented Realities. Introducing the Special Issue of Management and Functional DifferentiationSystems Research and Behavioral Science (2017)
In this reintroduction to the concept of functional differentiation, we present historical evidence that the perceived proliferation of moral communication in management and organization research and practice is at odds with the principles of management and organization. We show that there is neither direct need nor direct way to derive decision premises from values as decisions and values cancel each other if they are not moderated by functional differentiation. We conclude that the future of management and organization be in decision-making without values and introduce a broad scope of tools and domains for value-free management by functional differentiation.
