Organization, Geography of


Müller, Martin (2015). Organization, Geography of. In: Wright, James D. International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences (Second Edition). Amsterdam: Elsevier, 301-306.

Abstract

The geography of organization denotes the interdisciplinary study of the spatial aspects of organizations and processes of organizing. Geography as well as organization and management studies are the major fields to contribute to this area. Three major strands of research can be distinguished. One focuses on ‘organizations in space’ and how organizational action transforms space and vice versa. The second one looks inside organizations and is interested in how space shapes organizational life. The third one moves away from the organization as an entity but rather centers on how processes of organizing create emergent sociomaterial orders.
