Changing Course on Choppy Waters
This chapter examines the adaptive innovators and their efforts to preserve both their occupational identities and economic well-being through finding creative solutions to the problems caused by the import crisis. More broadly, it focuses on the process and consequences of changing to adapt. By using the internet to find new and lucrative markets for their high-quality catch, as well as taking advantage of production and shipping technologies, these local actors are not only fighting against global forces, they are using globalization to advance their own agendas. And while this option may not always be available to individuals facing unemployment, the chapter argues that innovative adaptation may be an important form of agency in many organizational settings.
