9780136087311: Organizational Theory, Design, and Change

For undergraduate and graduate courses in Organization Theory, Organizational Design, and Organizational Change/Development.

Business is changing at break-neck speed, so managers must be increasingly active in reorganizing their firms to gain a competitive edge.

Organizational Theory, Design, and Change continues to provide students with the most up-to-date and contemporary treatment of the way managers attempt to increase organizational effectiveness.  By making organizational change the centerpiece in a discussion of organizational theory and design, this text stands apart from other books on the market.

The sixth edition has been updated to reflect the most recent trends in real-world managing techniques. Examples have been updated to provide vivid illustrations of such techniques in action.
