About the RO Bibliography
In Ken Craddock's own words,
"This Bibliography is in two parts because it grew too big. As you follow your own trail of research into this material you will begin to sense the dynamics that have been surrounding this theory, its power, and why it is resisted. I believe this theory is fundamental to the future of organization studies."
This is an Introduction to requisite organization theory, to the bibliography itself, and to Elliott Jaques and Wilfred Brown, the founders of this theory. It provides a context for the articles, chapters and books in each section of Part II and shows why this theory is so important and so expansive. The dissertations have their own introductory essays. The one for the theses written explicitly on the theory is extensive. I have also tried to point out some of the features of its future development.
The second half of Part I consists of topic lists. Some of the works in Part II were published as part of a series. Others I have brought together to show their substance as a body of knowledge or to show their power, such as replication studies and cases.
