Images of Organization: Executive Edition
The Executive Edition has translated the implications of the original work into a powerful message for leaders, mangers and decision makers in every sector. In showing how organization and management theory is constructed through favored metaphors it shows the basis of managerial thinking and how managers can avoid superficial management fads by selecting metaphors wisely and then using them creatively to generate insights, ideas, and new ways of working.
In the words of the Publisher … like the original “The Executive Edition is a monumental work. No other management book covers so much ground while developing the implications for management with such force. Morgan is a master of the links between theory and practice. He has a gift for stripping complex ideas to fundamentals, and for fusing a kaleidoscope of insights into practical schemes for reading and shaping organizational life. This essential volume provides the kind of organizational 'radar' system managers need to negotiate the demands of the 21st century. It is a resource they will turn to again and again.”
