Author: Edgar H. Schein
Description: From Book News, Inc.
Refreshed with new research and new case examples, the second edition of the 1985 work defining organizational culture expands on the concept and its application to the dilemmas of corporate management. Despite its being hard to define, analyze, measure, and manage, the concept continues to attract attention for the light it sheds on the workplace. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
Genuinely useful to those interested in effectiveness, leadership, and culture.
