Abstract: In most economies, both developed and developing, industrialisation is viewed as a necessary step towards economic development. New risks for industrialisation are associated with the result of the economic and social changes, regarding the transition to a post-industrial society. Modern progress of organization theory has generated important questions and challenges to conventional sociological and organizational theories. These developments are related to “conditions of postmodernity†– dynamic environment and a post-industrial society with information and knowledge-based nonhomogeneous values as a central research topic. As a result it should be stressed that nowadays society is directly linked to the adjustments in values as a shift to post-industrial modes of production. Modern industrialisation concept should represent the post-industrial society approach, providing framework for the practical applications and explaining the modern company value creation process that corresponds to the economic transformation into post-industrial.
