Understanding Organizationsoffers an extended 'dictionary' of the key concepts -- culture, motivations, leadership, role-playing, co-ordinating and consultation -- and then shows how this 'language' can help us find new solutions to familiar problems. Few management writers have been as consistently challenging and influential as Charles Handy. Firmly established as one ofthecore business texts, this book is essential reading for anyone interested in organizations and how to make them work better.
