In a new introduction to his classic text, Charles Handy demonstrates how the key concepts of culture, motivation, leadership, power, role-playing, and group-working remain as important today as when the book was first published. "Organizations are not objects. They are micro-societies." This core business text gives students and professionals the tools to analyze and improve these "micro-societies."
