Abstract and Keywords

Research on organizational energy is an emerging field of inquiry. Organizational energy broadly refers to the force of a collective unit (an organization, department, or team) in pursuit of its goals. Studies investigate how and when collective units have mobilized their human potential. This chapter reviews conceptual and empirical studies focused on concepts such as momentum, energy in networks, or productive organizational energy. Research insights point to practices that managers might use to energize their organizations or work units. The chapter ends by identifying areas for future research in the field of organizational energy.

Keywords: Organizational energy, measurement of energy, productive energy, momentum, leadership
