It gives me very great pleasure to endorse the 6th edition of Managing and Organizations. The authors have once again refined and expanded this brilliant and authoritative guide to the field of management and organization studies – a guide that has long been the ‘go to’ reference point for students, academics and practitioners alike. The logic behind the book is outstanding, moving from analysing foundational issues of managing individuals, teams and groups (in Part One), to considering how organizational practices are affected by issues of culture, power and conflict (in Part Two), finally to discussion of wider contextual effects of ethics, globalization and sustainability on organizational processes (in Part Three). A must buy for all those interested in how organizations and institutions are managed in these exceptionally dynamic and turbulent times.
