Rooted in decades of social science research across multiple disciplines, Bolman and Deal's four-frame model has continued to evolve since its conception over 25 years ago; this new sixth edition has been updated to include coverage of cross-sector collaboration, generational differences, virtual environments, globalization, sustainability, and communication across cultures. The Instructor's guide has been expanded to provide additional tools for the classroom, including chapter summary tip sheets, mini-assessments, Bolman & Deal podcasts, and more. These recent revisions reflect the intersection of reader recommendations and the current leadership environment, resulting in a renewed practicality and even greater alignment with everyday application. Combining the latest research from organizational theory, organizational behavior, psychology, sociology, political science and more, the model detailed here provides real guidance for real leaders. Guide, motivate, and inspire your team's best performance as you learn to: * Optimize group, team, and organizational structure * Build a positive, collaborative dynamic across generations, teams, and sectors * Understand power and conflict amidst the internal and external political landscape * Shape your organization's culture and build a cohesive sense of spirit Bolman and Deal's four-frame model has withstood the test of time because it offers an accessible, compact, and powerful set of ideas for navigating complexity and turbulence. In today's business climate, leadership trends come and go; today's flash in the pan is tomorrow's obsolete strategy, but a leadership framework built on a solid foundation will serve your organization well no matter what the future holds. Reframing Organizations provides clear guidance and up-to-date insight for anyone facing the challenges of contemporary leadership.

From the Back Cover:

AN ELEGANT FRAMEWORK FOR MORE EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIP

Bolman and Deal's four-frame model has been transforming business leadership for over 40 years. Using a multidisciplinary approach to management, this deceptively simple model offers a powerful set of tools for navigating complexity and turbulence; as the political and economic climate continues to evolve, this model has never been more relevant than today.

The Structural Frame explores the convergence of organizational structure and function, and shows why social architecture must take environment into account. Case studies illustrate successful alignment in diverse organizations, and guidelines provide strategic insight for avoiding common pathologies and achieving the right fit.

The Human Resource Frame dissects the complex dynamics at the intersection of people and organizations. Leadership is the difference between motivation and alienation, and this discussion explores the practices and assumptions to build high-performance organizations.

The Political Frame shows how competition, conflict, and the struggle for power and resources can be either a tool for growth or a toxic landmine for an individual or organization. Case studies show how both constructive and destructive practices influence social, political, and economic trends beyond the boardroom walls.

The Symbolic Frame defines organizational culture, and provides insight on bringing a diverse group of individuals together into a cohesive team. From organizational structures and processes to everyday humor and language, the power of symbol and culture can be leveraged as a tool for achievement.

This new Sixth Edition has been updated with new information on cross-sector collaboration, generational differences, virtual leadership, globalization, cross-culture communication, and more, with an expanded Instructor's Guide that includes summaries, mini-assessments, videos, and extra resources.
