Overview

First Published in 1984, Lee Bolman and Terrence Deal's best-selling book has become a classic in the field. Its four-frame model examines organizations as factories, families, jungles, and theaters or temples: The Structural Frame: how to organize and structure groups and teams to get results, The Human Resource Frame: how to tailor organizations to satisfy human needs, improve human resource management, and build positive interpersonal and group dynamics, The Political Frame: how to cope with power and conflict, build coalitions, hone political skills, and deal with internal and external politics, The Symbolic Frame: how to shape a culture that gives purpose and meaning to work, stage organizational drama for internal and external audiences, and build team spirit through ritual, ceremony, and story.

This new edition contains a wealth of new examples from both the private and the nonprofit sectors. In addition, the book offers updated content and expanded discussions of self-managing teams, dramaturgical and institutional theory, change theory, the "blink" process, "black swans," and gay rights. There is an Instructor's Guide available online.

    Beyond the fads this book is about business with a capitol B

    For every book that promises a fix to business' organizational problems by oversimplyfying and 'Dr. Philling' their are real books on modern business problems that take a look from the perspective of business as seen through the eyes of someone with true business accumen. This book breaks the problems of business into 4 areas The Structural Frame The Human Resource Frame The Political Frame The Symbolic Frame. Regardless of what hat you wear all of these should be of importance to the serious business student. Too many bight, astute business people can't see past their MBA's. Reading this book can help open the eyes of those who need to lead modern organizations into the new century's world of instant and ubiquitous information and global marketplace.
