Erhard Friedberg is the leader of one of the most ambitious and successful attempts to make organizational studies accessible, systematic, and fun at the same time. His Multimedia Encyclopedia in Organization Theory. From Taylor to Today (2011) is more than an encyclopedia: is an experiment which link images, voices, faces, documents, archives, in order to place the student or the reader in front of several “layers” of knowledge and learning possibilities. The beginner will find a whole set of instruments and living experiences talking about the most interesting and basic issues of organization theory, The expert will find a valuable set of information, documents, articles, images, precious to continuing her or his research or teaching activities. “From Tailor to today 2010” is no doubt a monumental work which reminds us that organization studies is and has been a living and passionate creation of real persons.

Michael HANNAN (American) is known as one of the initiators (with John Freeman) of a new approach to the study of organizations, called “population ecology of organizations” or organizational ecology. This innovative approach wants to transpose the questions and methods of biology to the study of the evolution of organizational forms.
Here, he is talking about what organization theories have to say to a manager.

PEDAGOCIAL PATH AND SEARCH ENGINE
What do we call a PATH?
Suppose you are a teacher who has to prepare specific lectures on organization theory: use this tool for selecting various items from the DVD (clips, texts, pictures, illustrations) that you plan to use in a given lecture. These sets of pedagogical resources are what we call "paths."
For example: you need clips on decision-making for your course on decision-making. Select the video clips you want and build your "decision-making-path." In your lecture, you have just to call back the "decision-making-path" and all the items selected by you are directly available.
Students can also use this tool for preparing presentations and seminar discussions.
What is the SEARCH engine?
The search engine allows the user to extract the textual or video data linked to a THEME or/and to an AUTHOR among the 281 references of the encyclopedia and its 233 video clips.
The SEARCH engine allows the user to extract publications of the bibliography corresponding to a THEME and/or an AUTHOR.
