Thoroughly updated, this fifth edition of the classic book outlines its four–frame model that examines organizations as factories, families, jungles, and theaters or temples: The Structural Frame: organize and structure groups and teams; The Human Resource Frame: tailor organizations to satisfy human needs, improve HRM, and build positive personal and group dynamics; The Political Frame: cope with power and conflict, build coalitions, hone political skills, and deal with politics; and The Symbolic Frame: shape a culture that gives purpose and meaning to work, stage organizational drama, and build team spirit.
