Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Faster. Faster. Faster. Not only do we expect more of ourselves in less time, but we also expect the same from our organizations. This collection of 10 essays from contributors with a range of disciplines and viewpoints address speed in connection with organizational identity, technology, and imagery. Coverage includes such topics as fast capitalism and its conflict with slow modernity, a psychoanalytical and critical reading of preoccupation with speed, power and resistance in accelerating organizations through representational infrastructures, the hot-desk environment and the personalization (or lack thereof) of work space, myths of speed in Israel's high-tech industry, the speed factor in fast food, the bicycle messenger at full speed as corporate icon, and the human experience of inhuman speed. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Speed of production, of information flow, of capital moving through deregulated financial and trading systems is apparently ubiquitous, as indeed is its seemingly inexorable increase in the consequently ever shorter here and now that we inhabit. But with so much going on, and going on so quickly, how can it all or can any of it be attended to? This volume assembles a range of thoughtful contributors who have bent their minds to deploy a range of different perspectives to consider the current fascination with speed and its implications for organizing and organizations. Through writings ordered into three key themes The Speed of Organizational Identity, The Speed of Organizational Technology, and The Speed of Organizational Imagery the contributors invite the reader to take gulps of theoretical and reflective air, to hold in abeyance for a moment the breathless talk of a faster tomorrow, to pause to look at the hurdy gurdy. Fast food, dotcoms, hotdesking, and international tr
