Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the relationship between three concepts: organisations, transformability and the dynamics of strategy. These three concepts together with their interrelationships are central in explaining the life cycle of organisations, their survival and renewal. Design/methodology/approach: The development of this explanation has been based on bringing together a diversity of perspectives. Each perspective provides a horizon of understanding by directing attention in a particular way. The benefits of this approach are that it avoids the pitfalls of one-dimensionalism. This approach more accurately reflects the multi-faceted reality within which organisations operate. Findings: Discusses, compares and contextualises the findings and approaches of the papers in this special issue. Originality/value: The perspectives considered represent a small sample of the diversity that exists. However, this sample as serves a starting-point in developing a wider, more holistic debate that aims to bring theory and practice together.
