Images of Organization
Since its first publication Images of Organization has become a classic in the management literature. The book is based on a very simple premise—that all theories of organization and management are based on implicit metaphors that stretch our imagination in ways that create powerful insights accompanied by major distortions. It provides a rich and comprehensive resource for exploring the complexity of modern organizations internationally, translating leading-edge theory into leading-edge practice. It challenges and reshapes how we think about organization and management in the most fundamental way.
