"What a "kick" I get out of teaching from Images of Organizations. What a head-snapping view of organizations it offers to my MBA students, as well as to the odd client/executive who is disposed to creep out of the practicality of business-as-usual and take in a vibrant thrilling view of organizations."??? Ariane David, Ph.D., Senior Advisor/President, The Veritas GroupSince its first publication over twenty years ago, Images of Organization has become a classic in the canon of management literature. The book is based on a very simple premise???that all theories of organization and management are based on implicit images or metaphors that stretch our imagination in a way that can create powerful insights, but at the risk of distortion. Gareth Morgan provides a rich and comprehensive resource for exploring the complexity of modern organizations internationally, translating leading-edge theory into leading-edge practice.???? This new Updated Edition preserves Morgan??'s renowned creative images and metaphors while refreshing the references and tables. ??The addition of a preface situates this classic theory in today??'s business environment while the instructor??'s resources (now available on CD) aid classroom teaching.???? Please contact??SAGE customer service to order your copy. Images of Organization challenges and reshapes how we think about organization and management in the most fundamental way. The new Updated Edition makes this monumental work available to a new generation of students and business leaders worldwide.Listen to an interview with author, Gareth Morgan on The Invisible Hand podcast.
