Abstract or Description

Acceleration, global speed, time compression and the ongoing striving for efficiency, parallel to worldwide economic competition and the urge for ever faster 'growth', pose problems for people's orientation in life, and, reflexively, for the way organizations work. Despite this intensification in the use of the time-space, technological and policy developments in and around organizations have not provided more 'free time'. On the contrary, they have increased the amount of time and the amount of work one is likely to have to do.
