9780070419322: Organizational Strategy, Structure and Process (McGraw-Hill series in management)

"Books and articles come and go, endlessly. But a few do stick, and this book is such a one. Organizational Strategy, Structure, and Process broke fresh ground in the understanding of strategy at a time when thinking about strategy was still in its early days, and it has not been displaced since." - David J. Hickson, Emeritus Professor of International Management & Organization, University of Bradford School of Management Originally published in 1978, Organizational Strategy, Structure, and Process became an instant classic, as it bridged the formerly separate fields of strategic management and organizational behavior. In this Stanford Business Classics reissue, noted strategy scholar Donald Hambrick provides a new introduction that describes the book's contribution to the field of organization studies. Miles and Snow also contribute new introductory material to update the book's central concepts and themes. Organizational Strategy, Structure, and Process focuses on how organizations adapt to their environments. The book introduced a theoretical framework composed of a dynamic adaptive cycle and an empirically based strategy typology showing four different types of adaptation. This framework helped to define subsequent research by other scholars on important topics such as configurational analysis, organizational fit, strategic human resource management, and multi-firm network organizations.

Review:

"Miles and Snow's path-breaking work seems as fresh and original today as when it was originally published. Their pioneering efforts at linking strategy, structure, process, and a management mindset is a model for today's researchers who seek to be both academically respectable yet managerially relevant. This book belongs in the core collection of any manager or serious student of strategy organization or management." - Christopher Bartlett, Thomas D. Casserly Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School "I grew up with Organizational Strategy, Structure, and Process as the primary intellectual framework for understanding business-level strategy. Now, twenty-five years later, this book remains as relevant and insightful as when it was written. All those who are interested in business strategy, whether, an academic or a manager, need to read this book as a foundational text." - S. Ghoshal,Professor of Strategic Leadership, London Business School "In an era of growing institutional failure, this book offers a great invitation for prototyping new forms of self-managing dynamic and innovative alliances instead of the old stagnating firms. It highlights an emerging organizational paradigm or recipe of Op Win Net, as an expanded theory of the new types of un-firms like Linux. Such a knowledge recipe will offer insights on how to start to develop meta capabilities like a Mega Brain to tap and insource the often invisible resources outside the territory of the traditional firm, as the capital in waiting, and to turn that intellectual capital into wealth for its stakeholders. The book is a must for the organizational designer of future wealth creation. I am most intrigued and stimulated by this book." - Leif Edvinsson,Lund University
