In Organization Theory: Management and Leadership Analysis, Jesper Blomberg explores the fields of organization theory and management, making sense of complex theories and encouraging critical thinking.
The book analyses organizations through four theoretical frameworks, offering students a clear structure they can use to understand complex organizational issues:
· the structural framework
· the Human Resources framework
· the power framework
· the symbolic framework
Each framework is explored by a chapter covering the basics, followed by a more advanced chapter so that students can deepen their understanding. A case study at the end of the book draws together theory and practice, giving students the opportunity to apply what they have learnt to a real management situation.
This book is suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate students studying Organization Theory and Management.
The book is complemented by a range of online resources including PowerPoint slides, an Instructor’s Manual and multiple-choice questions.
