Organization & Change
Governance is a matter of organizing, hence it’s useful to draw on ideas from organization studies and management. Organizations exist in many forms and shapes and contribute to society and its governance in many ways. Understanding organization helps to understand participation, strategy, and, importantly the coordinated change we need to move society to a more sustainable path.
