Right Way In Information Age
It was easy to develop a theory in the last century and to ensure that it is valid in a particular environment. However, as information started flooding this world in the digital era, the validity of many theories lost its significance in the larger domain. Contingency theory, situational theory or any such theory can be viewed in the modern perspective as a 'part time theory'. However part time theory can still be used and found true in some situations in some of the time. In todays changing world, it remains a challenge and we must ensure that theory is valid and true for some longer time, in a longer perspective with changing time. Otherwise, instead of calling it theory, we must use these it as assumptions or hypthesis. The writings also need to be done accordingly.
