Abstract and Keywords

The adoption of management ideas requires substantial resources. Most research focuses on a single adoption of ideas, how they come into use and fall out of use. Although some new management ideas ‘come back’, and have a ‘second life’ or even a ‘third life’, how and why they are re-adopted needs further exploration. This chapter explores the re-adoption of self-organization and identifies four drivers of re-adoption, explaining how external and internal conditions, technological change, and employee experience can shape the (re)action to management ideas. It concludes by outlining opportunities for future research avenues.

Keywords: re-adoption, self-management, self-organizing, holacracy, fashion
