"DEC Is Dead, Long Live DEC" tells the 40-year story of the creation and demise of one of the pioneering companies of the computer age, and explains in detail how a particular culture can become so embedded that the organization is unable to adapt to changing circumstances even though it sees the need very clearly. It shows how the evolution of technology, organization and culture intertwine into a complex system that may leave the organization unable to cope. It shows clearly the price of success and growth and the potential problems that organizational maturity creates. Edgar Schein is one of the last giants left of the original founders of the Organization Development field - he is also a widely respected scholar and a bestselling author. This title shows how the unique culture of DEC was responsible both for its early rise and for its ultimate downfall - a real-life classical tragedy.
