Organization Theory: Selected Readings
Edition 4 Rev ed
OverviewAs consumers, clients, customers or, perhaps most significantly, as employers or employees, everyone depends on formal organizations. This resource book explains how such organizations work and why people within them behave in the way they do. There are five separate but interrelated sections, each with a short introduction to the readings selected: organization structure, the organization in its environment, management and decision-making, people in organizations and organizational change and learning. The text is a companion volume to "Writers on Organizations" by Derek S. Pugh and Derek J. Hickson.
