Summary
"In Perform or Else, Jon McKenzie uncovers an uncanny relationship between cultural, organizational, and technological performance. In this theoretical tour de force, McKenzie demonstrates that all three paradigms can operate together to create powerful and contradictory pressures to 'perform - or else'." "His startling readings of the Challenger mission will ignite new lines of research, while his explosive conclusion - that performance will be to the twentieth and twenty-first centuries what discipline was to the eighteenth and nineteenth - is an exhilarating realization of how culture, business, and science have become hyperlinked through globalization. McKenzie then goes on to outline a vision of resistant strategies for the future."--Jacket
