9780099548416: Gods of Management: The Changing Work of Organisations (Organizations)

This is a sparkling and witty allegory of the four types of organisation. The club culture, ruled over by Zeus; the role culture, whose patron saint is Apollo; the task culture, owing allegiance to Athena; and the existential culture, whose people come under the orbit of Dionysus. It is required reading for everybody who wants to be survivor in a world of changing organisational culture. (1994-10-10)

Review:

Handy's jargon-free observations pack more power because of their clarity and prescriptive nature. ( Fortune)

This is a serious book, while improving on the majority of managerial texts by being entertaining as well as instructive. ( Management Today)

A man with a lifetime's experience... One of the more stimulating books on management. ( Financial Times)
