A review of duality theory suggests that this perspective holds particular promise for organizational analysis. Two arguments are presented : (i) that tension is the dependent variable for the analysis of organizations in dynamic environments, and (ii) that strategic issues and organizational capabilities can be conceptualized in terms of States of tension. A methodology for tension analysis is developed, illustrated with an analysis of the tensions in a biotechnology company. The implications for the research and practice in the field of SHRM are discussed
