"Many organizational researchers are curious as to the relevance of contemporary psychoanalytic thinking to the study of organizations and organizational change.

In particular, Thomas Ogden provides us with yet another object relational model that helps to explain the influence of omnipotent fantasies in the form of magical thinking, the interplay of conscious and unconscious narratives and emotional processing in the form of dream thinking, and possibilities for change, innovation, imagination and genuine reflective practice, in the form of transformative thinking."
