Sheltered for a long time within the public sector environment with high job security and professional research autonomy, defense R&D organizations faced unprecedented challenges when government support was being withdrawn and closure threatening. They needed to be led by a suitable vision in order to implement comprehensive changes to their operations and remain viable. This study explores this constitution of vision as a mechanism of intentional change, a strategic tool to reach the desired future for the organization. Going beyond the current literature, the authors ask to what extent, and how, organizational members reconstruct vision in a way that it can support or detain change, a question of importance for management scholars as well as professional managers in both public and private organizations.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is an excellent body of ethnographic scholarship on institutional entrepreneurship within the defense R&D sector, beautifully written and complete with a rich description of Gamma - a truly deep ethnography." * Siri Terjesen, Indiana University

"This book is a pleasure to read. It is a highly unusual ethnography that provides a window into an institutional space (nuclear research) that is virtually invisible to the public eye. Given the obvious security issues involved, it is even more remarkable that the work was done. The ethnography itself is brilliantly written, showing 'Gamma' during a major transition in organizational ethics and activities." * Benson Honig, Teresa Cascioli Chair in Entrepreneurial Leadership, MacMaster University
