Corporate Co–Evolution is one of the first major works in Blackwell s
Organization and Strategy research series of business texts. By tracing the history and growth of Telemig, a major Brazilian telecommunications company,
Corporate Co–Evolution develops broader macro–economic principles that can be applied to today s international corporate environment.

After a general introduction to political regulations and other domains of the corporate environment that impact the growth of companies, Corporate Co–Evolution delves deeply into Telemig s past. The text closely documents and analyzes the dramatic changes over the course of 30 years that transformed Telemig from a lumbering dinosaur to a soaring eagle as privatization takes the corporation into the 21st century. The authors skillfully draw out the practical and policy implications of the Telemig experience to develop a broader systematic theory of corporate evolution that is highly relevant to the contemporary business world.
