Many students have learned about the theories of organization, not by reading the original works, but by reading discussions of theories in textbooks. This sets the theories in context and provides some useful and important information, but those who take this approach to learning fail to see the more complete underlying theoretical structures, which are set forth clearly in Henry Tosi's Theories of Organization.
