Product Overview

Organizations: Management Without Control provides a comprehensive understanding of the functions of formal organizations and the challenges they face. The most effective organizations provide members with opportunities to achieve their personal goals while pursing the organizations objectives. Using a practical approach with minimal jargon, author Howard P. Greenwald covers the basic features of organizations such as roles, structure, reward systems, power and authority, and culture and introduces important theoretical perspectives related to these features.

Key Features"Emphasizes the theme of management without control: " This volume differs from most standard texts by highlighting both the challenges and opportunities that result from the independence of the individuals in the organizations ranks."Stresses the importance of individual motivation and self-fulfillment: " Recognizing the individuals responsibility for their own success, the book helps readers evaluate clues to whether the organization to which they belong is an adequate opportunity."Offers a critical perspective on current fads and management ideologies: " Proposing no formulaic solutions, the book provides the perspectives required to understand each organizations uniqueness and to develop remedies to issues as they arise."Makes theory accessible through numerous real-life examples: " Chapters include examples from life in business organizations, government agencies, non-profits, clubs, friendship groups, and families. "Examines multinational corporations: " Challenges involved in management on an international scale are explored as the book applies the principle of individual and group independence to globalmatters."Underscores multidisciplinary interest in organizations: " Content is drawn from sociology, social psychology, anthropology, and management science.
