`This text should prove invaluable to practising administrative managers and advanced students, especially those undertaking their own research' - Journal of Administrative Management


I would like to say that this book is excellent, and it is. If you are already versed in academic theory and ideas regarding the management of organizations. For new students or mature students returning to study after a break in studies, I fear that it would inhibit their studies as much of what is discussed is inaccessible to the untrained or new academic.
