Any typical organization goes through its life span encompassing the three phases starting from birth & growth, then to stability & maturity, and finally to decline & death. This article explores the Organization theory of each of these phases with the metaphor of Quantum Physics.
The first chapter "Quantum Physics: A trusted guide for a growing organization" captures the analogy for the growing organization. The second chapter "Organization and the Wave Particle Duality" views the existential phase in the realms of quantum mechanics. The last chapter “Radioactive Metamorphosis of Organizations” explains the decline phase in simile with the radioactivity of the atomic world.
