Organizational Culture / Edition 1 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- SAGE Publications
This five-part volume has two purposes: to explore the connections between culture inside and outside organizations, and to focus on a diverse range of methodologies useful in understanding organizational symbols, rituals, language, and distribution of power. Part One focuses on theoretical discussions and analyses of organizational culture. In Part Two, the contributors distinguish the process of cultural change from the deliberate management of that process. Part Three confronts the problem of how to conduct and manage research. Part Four places organizational culture in a wider social context. Part Five looks at the future of this area of organizational study.
