In the modernist picture, an organization is a complex arrangement of matter (people and things). But this book argues that organizations begin in a purpose, which expands into a structure, to then be populated by objects.

The co-existence of structure, purpose, and matter creates conflicts between the three and conflict resolution drives all change in an organization. The book describes five mechanisms for conflict-driven change. Conflicts cannot be avoided, but the opposing sides in the conflict can be balanced to create stability, longevity, and efficiency. The pursuit of this balance is the central theme for this book. Conflict-driven change contrasts to the model of change in modern science, and the book discusses its applications to other areas of science.
