The 4-frames of business are so phenomenally clear in this book. It has been fine-tuned over the last 30-years with relevant stories of success and failure to help the reader look at an organization from different angles to find the most effective strategy for solving a problem or advancing. If you are looking to move beyond the status-quot, this is not a silly book of quick-fixes but a quality textbook for students and practitioners alike. My professor recommended this reading along with Complex Organizations: A Critical Essay .
