Similar to the founding of occupational therapy, and recently occupational science, renowned researchers from a variety of backgrounds (e.g., Murray Gell-Mann, a physicist; John Holland.
Dialogic OD is the next step in the evolution of organizational change theory, from thinking of organizations as organisms that adapt to their environments, to organizations as networks of meaning-making, always in a process of becoming. The mission of BMI is to further research, theory and the practice of Dialogic OD. Organizational behavior (OB) or organisational behaviour is the: "study of human behavior in organizational settings, the interface between human behavior and the organization, and the organization itself". OB research can be categorized in at least three ways: individuals in organizations (micro-level) work groups (meso-level).
