Business & management

A sequel to his early classic text, Organization, John Child's new book provides a state-of-the-art guide to organizational management in today's world. As in his earlier book, this authoritative new book: Organization: Contemporary Principles and Practice addresses organizational issues in terms of how managers experience them and how MBA students can most effectively learn about them.
John Child draws attention to the exciting possibilities currently arising in organizations, as the conditions for their survival change. His analysis covers new internal organizational forms, various kinds of network organization and the evolution of organization to meet new demands. The topics addressed range from integration, control, reward policies, outsourcing, flexibility and strategic alliances, to trust, learning, and corporate governance.

Written in an approachable style, and featuring new international examples, this is a major contemporary guide to the role of organizations and people in business success. Although it focuses on business organizations, much of its content is also highly relevant to public and not-for-profit institutions in the context of global competition, new information technologies, and the knowledge-based economy.

Each chapter contains summaries of key points, lists of practical guidelines, questions for discussion, and sources of further reading.
