Organization Theory: A Practice Based Approach
Moving away from the more traditional linear narrative approach of other textbooks, Organization Theory: A Practice Based Approach addresses the subject in an exciting new way that is appealing to today's students. The authors identify the key questions, problems, and issues that practitioners face and then discuss relevant theories. In addition to traditional topics, they cover issues that are not always included in other texts--boundary spanning, leadership, quality management, strategic change, and developmental psychology/organizational learning--putting organizational theory into context and helping students to more easily engage with the material. In addition, a wide range of case studies illustrate how organizational theory applies to real-life situations.
