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.

Good to get things moving 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 .
