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 can any of it be attended to?

This text assembles a range of thoughtful contributors who have bent their minds to deploy a range of different perspectives to consider our current fascination with speed and its complications for our organization and organizations.

Through writing ordered into the key themes - The speed of organisation Identity, The Speed of Organization Technology and The speed of Organization Imagery -  these authors invite you to take gulps if 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 travelers fly across the page, skilfully illuminated by insights drawn from theorist past and present. The speed of organization will certainly be more vivid for you after having read this book.
