This text has been designed to contribute towards the effective practice and evaluation of organizational research through enhanced understanding of methodological issues and problems. It is tailored for the needs of management students and professionals doing courses on organizational analysis. The author takes numerous examples of research, principally from North American and the United Kingdom, to illustrate his themes. Each research design and method is systematically appraised in terms of its uses and limitations. Experiments, surveys, participant observation and interviewing - and more particular problems such as measurement, levels of analysis and the relevance of epistemological issues - are thoroughly discussed.

This text responds to current content and discipline issues by being rooted in communication scholarship and by addressing and integrating issues of social diversity. The book provides a theoretically unified and pragmatically oriented approach to human communication (i.e., a good balance of theory and skills); it consistently integrates issues of social diversity into both theoretical foundations and discussions of skills and particular communication contexts. The text provides students with an understanding of theory by showing them how they can apply communication to their own lives.

The authors, representing the American and European approach to organizational design, have entered into this important area in a very comprehensive and interdisciplinary manner. They define an organization to be a structure of form, information, decision rules, and incentives which can be changed within limits. The book is concerned with the interplay between organizations in the real world, and organizations as formal models, as an approach to the choice of efficient organizations in an efficient manner. The book is a synthesis of operations research, management science and social science approaches to organizational design process and choice.

For a long time most discussion of management and management problems in Western Europe and North America has been conducted in analytical or "rationalistic" terms. Researchers, teachers and management consultants have been particularly prone to see the question of choosing the right investment, the right product, the right market etc as the greatest if not the only problem facing corporate management. A great many models and management tools have been designed with this in mind. But management's problem is not only to decide what should be done, but also to see that it is done. In many cases the main difficulty is to get the organization to take co-ordinated and forceful action. The study of Japanese management in particular has shown just how important motivation and commitment are, not only on the shop floor but also at the management level. The book asks the question: how do organizations achieve co- ordinated action when it is most difficult to do so, that is when it is a question of major changes in relation to the kind of action the organization is used to. In light of a number of topical cases of organizational change, a theory is developed, which can help us both to understand and to influence the organization's propensity for action and change. Key concepts in the theory are organizational ideology, expectations, motivation and commitment. It becomes increasingly clear that forceful action conflicts with rationality in the classical sense; thus the conclusion and recommendations presented in this book differ very much from those traditionally proposed. An attempt is made to explain why organizations are irrational, and why they should be so. The cases are based on penetrating empirical studies in both the private and public sections, and in both manufacturing and service industries, they concern product development, the restructuring of a large corporation, reorganizations, and the introduction of new operations.

This text examines the role of ethics in the business world and ethical dilemmas encountered by managers. Ethical decisions do not take place in a vacuum. Many people, all with their own interests and standards, are involved in business encounters every day. "Stakeholder and Issues Management" is this text's unique approach to teaching business ethics. It pays special attention to the relationships among the many and varied stakeholders that have roles in business situations. These stakeholders include the market and non-market entities that affect a business. Ethical issues must be addressed by individuals, groups, corporations, and even nations in very different ways, and the consequences differ with each person or group involved. This text gives students practical tools to handle moral dilemmas in the workplace and the world. Topics include risk management, preferential hiring, corporate legitimacy, and moral accountability.
