Purpose: The article is a review aimed at presenting the concept of and available knowledge on
teal organizations and at indicating further research objectives.
Methodology: Research methods employed in the study included a systematic review of the literature, along with its critical analysis and logical deduction.
Findings: The analysis shows that teal management – based on self-organization – may prove to be an opportunity for companies to adapt to changing circumstances. The teal organization concept is a true revolution in modern management, as it rejects all systems and previously immutable rules of the business world. The subject requires further empirical research.
Research limitations: Limitations apply to both the concept of teal organizations itself and the literature review. Since the teal organization concept was established in 2015, there is a lack of reviews and scientific studies or in-depth empirical research on this topic. Thus, the articles included in the review do not exhaust the issue.
Implications: The issues discussed in the article require further scientific research, primarily empirical. The said research should cover various aspects, such as building a culture of trust and self-organization, leadership (3.0), management through values, and new management methods.
Value: This is the first publication in this field that falls within this research gap. This study constitutesa significant contribution to the development of research on the concept of teal organizations.
