This chapter picks up where Chapter 3 left off, discussing what we know about the foundation underlying all-edge adhocracies: organizational networks. In this chapter, I discuss what organizational networks are, what characteristics they share, how they work, and why they are beginning to flourish. Based on what we learn here, we take a second look at the case from Chapter 3, seeing how the nonemployer firms had to handle the dynamics of their subcontractor networks.

Keywords:   organizational networks, flat structure, changing composition, flexibility, adaptivity
