    <subfield code="a">Much has been learned, and even more needs to be learned, about designing
organizations and institutions. Since the 1960s this research has evolved
from contingency to configuration, to complementarity, to complexity and creative
theories of organizing. This chapter reviews these evolving theories (better
called perspectives) and urges scholars to return to the frontier of organization
studies by addressing an important new agenda in designing organizations
with promising new research methods.</subfield>
