Revue de presse

This is a masterful piece of research that will make an enduring contribution to our knowledge of how the organization of science develops at the frontier of knowledge. Boisot and his many colleagues have crafted an excellent volume that convincingly explains why management theorists may have more to learn about scientific organization from physicists than vice versa. (Henry Chesbrough, Professor at the Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley, and author of Open Innovation: The New Imperative for Creating and Profiting from Technology)

This book has vast implications far beyond CERN, The Large Hadron Collider, and the Atlas project. Based on the concept of "Information Space", 3000 scientists and others face the irreducible unknown. Standard planning and optimization fail. Emergence and generativity succeed. This book is a prolegomenon for governments and an emergent set of interwoven global civilizations. (Stuart Kauffman, MacArthur Fellow FRSC, Santa Fe Institute, University of Vermont, and author of At Home in the Universe, Investigations, and others)

Présentation de l'éditeur

After twenty-five years of preparation, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Geneva, is finally running its intensive scientific experiments into high-energy particle physics. These experiments, which have so captured the public's imagination, take the world of physics to a new energy level, the terascale, at which elementary particles are accelerated to one millionth of a percent of the speed of light and made to smash into each other with a combined energy of around
fourteen trillion electron-volts. What new world opens up at the terascale? No one really knows, but the confident expectation is that radically new phenomena will come into view.

The kind of 'big science' being pursued at CERN, however, is becoming ever more uncertain and costly. Do the anticipated benefits justify the efforts and the costs? This book aims to give a broad organizational and strategic understanding of the nature of 'big science' by analyzing one of the major experiments that uses the Large Hadron Collider, the ATLAS Collaboration. It examines such issues as: the flow of 'interlaced' knowledge between specialist teams; the intra- and inter-organizational
dynamics of 'big science'; the new knowledge capital being created for the workings of the experiment by individual researchers, suppliers, and e-science and ICTs; the leadership implications of a collaboration of nearly three thousand members; and the benefits for the wider societal setting.

This book aims to examine how, in the face of high levels of uncertainty and risk, ambitious scientific aims can be achieved by complex organizational networks characterized by cultural diversity, informality, and trust - and where 'big science' can head next.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Advancing into the Unknown 31 août 2012
Par Samantine - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
This is a first-class introduction to advanced particle physics and its research for the non-physicist, and a fascinating look inside the organization of the largest multinational research effort of our times. In advanced physics, this is "the only game in town" -- so its outcomes matter enormously to the physicists taking part, and also to the millions of citizens from around the world whose taxes fund it, and whose economies will benefit (eventually) from its findings. The recent success of the CERN researchers in discovering evidence of the Higgs boson is testimony that the intricate web of trust and information sharing and collaborative learning worked, despite the vast majority of researchers not being CERN employees. The sheer audacity of endeavoring to find evidence required significant advances in detectors and computers particularly, well beyond the capabilities of the time when this project began. Hence not only did researchers have to push their suppliers; they also had to interactively solve problems, where one researcher's preference might unwittingly cause difficulties for others. The book lays out the organizational responses to such uncertainty -- key lessons for businesses with outsourced partners scattered around the globe, mostly not company employees, whose innovative capabilities must be engaged. Well worth the effort to read it!Collisions and Collaboration: The Organization of Learning in the ATLAS Experiment at the LHC

If you responsible for leading teams of incredibly talented people or building collaboratives comprised of ambitious rivals with conflicting agendas, this book is a must read. The LHC Collaborative serves as the perfect frame by which the reader is invited to explore how effective teams achieve incredible results despite the fact that these temporary work alliances are often fragile and strained.

More than that, you'll see how the process worked in helping achieve the one of greatest scientific discoveries in history.
