Karl Weick

Karl Weick's website (official or not) http://www.bus.umich.edu/Academics/Departments/Obhrm/Obhrm/FacultyBio.asp?id=000119782
subjects Karl Weick writes about Organization, Complexity in Business, Organizational Learning
Karl Weick's profile The Rensis Likert Collegiate Professor of Organizational Behavior and Psychology at the University of Michigan. He has been on the Michigan faculty since 1988. In 1969 he published a book called The Social Psychology of Organizing. In 1990 he received from the Academy of Management the Irwin Award for Distinguished Scholarly Contributions. Among those contributions was an article published that same year in the Academy of Management Review entitled, "Theory Construction as Disciplined Imagination." To some he is an articulate and innovative social behavior theorist. To others he is a windbag also called a consultant. According to his biography published at the University of Michigan's website, Weick's current research interests include:

Collective sensemaking under pressure
Medical errors
Handoffs in Extreme Events
High Reliability Performance
Improvisation
Continuous Change
Although little is known of Mr. Weick's interest in baseball, his theoretical work in the management of uncertainty through sensemaking and improvisation should prove to be invaluable as he helps stop the sinking of this stinking ship of Capitalists.
