Missing Organizational Linkages
Tools for Cross-Level Research



July 2000 | 208 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

In this groundbreaking book, Paul Goodman presents an innovative approach for analyzing and understanding organizations. He ask the question: How do actions among individuals and groups affect (or not affect) organizations as a whole? He challenges the view that improvement in individual or group performance necessarily "links" to enhanced organizational functioning. Clearly written in a conversational style, the book is filled with rich examples chosen to illustrate different views of the linkage concepts within different domains and context. A significant contribution to management education, the book is highly recommended for researchers, graduate students, organizational consultants, practitioners, and research libraries.
