1. “Interesting” - Theoritical Gap
Interesting!

“A key finding is that, contrary to leaders’ predictions, members’ efforts will often remain

constant or increase after a closing is announced.” (pp.542/L10)

The paper fill theoretical gap:

“The paper shows how the announcement that organizational death will occur encourages

members to begin dismantling their organization.” (pp.542/L7)

So far, no published framework specifies how dying organizations make the transition to death!

“Much has been written about why organizations die…” (Literature review/ pp.542/P2)
