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.
