The Impact of Change on Newspapers

In previous chapters, we analyzed several concepts regarding newspaper change. For example, in chapter 4, we examined causes and shapes of change. As to the former, we suggested key antecedents that initiate change. In exploring processes of newspaper change, we identified the significant areas of people, technology-task, and the product. We also briefly discussed the role of time in this arena, distinguishing between the ideas of timing and duration. Throughout the discussion, we emphasized the need to understand how individual newspapers operate and behave. We looked at three newspapers in detail in chapters 5 through 7.
