Abstract

The concept of the beautiful organization is at once appealing and elusive. In this working paper a conceptual framework is given with respect to beauty of and in organizations to give people concepts and a language to discuss the beauty of their organization and to support their efforts to make it more beautiful. It is also meant as a contribution to the field of research on organizational aesthetics. The framework is a further development of ideas discussed at a workshop at the Annual meeting of the Academy of Management in Boston, August 2012. It is still in development; comments are welcome.
