Designing Effective Organizations
Traditional and Transformational Views



August 1994 | 492 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This book on organization theory adopts a distinctive stance. In contrast to the traditional rational approach, it develops a transformational perspective which focuses on the organizational world as a projection of each organizational member's consciousness. While covering all the basic topics of organization theory, the author's approach reflects today's changing management paradigms.
