..With fearless attitudes, Jan-Erik Iohanson and Jarmo Vakkuri approach hybrid organizations in their new book, published by Routledge. The strength of the work is that the writers dare to think outside the box and are able to write in a relaxed fashion. The text runs smoothly and through well-chosen examples, the reader’s attention is captivated. The best of the book is definitely the last three chapters. They discuss the theoretically interesting relationship between the hybrid organizations in terms of strategic management and the principles of performance (the so-called three e:s). Looking at the university institution from the perspective of hybridization is an excellent and thought-provoking exercise.
