Abstract

This article considers the configuration of modular and temporary organization designs. By drawing on two prominentdeveloper firms, namely, Valve Inc. and Linden Lab, respectively, “cabals” and “studios” are explored. The results of interviewsconducted with employees of these firms are used as evidence. The article demonstrates that, to various extents, theseorganization designs organize, facilitate, and maintain how work is accomplished and coordinated within the boundaries of a permanent firm. It extends our understanding of how these designs provide a structure to how tasks are constituted inconjunction with the nature of the product.
