View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Team-working, partnership, quality circles, works councils, industrial democracy--are they distinct and innovative arrangements or is it a case of new wine in old bottles? In the post-war period we have seen numerous forms of organizational participation sometimes as experiments, sometimes as negotiated expediency, and sometimes as hype. Different ideas have emerged from different parts of the world, in different industries, at different times with different objectives. In this book, four experienced international analysts take the longer view and look at the changing forms of--and changing debates around--organizational participation. They review an extensive literature of experiments and practical experiences through a critical evaluation of the available data to reach balanced conclusions about the importance and utility of this concept for organizations now and in the future.

About the Author:

Frank Heller is at Tavistock Institute for Human Relations. Eugen Pusic is at Zagreb University.


`clear and cogent style, avoiding high faluting academic parlance as well as the smooth PR prose of a bestseller written by a fashionable management guru. It is truly amazing that the authors, after having occupied themselves for so many years with the fads and foibles, the facts and fashions
of the field of particpation and kindred topics, still manage to take a fresh look and tell us something new about it. The set-up of the book is quite coherent and original ... a highly remarkable and up-to-date achievement.'
Cornelis J. Lammers, Organization Studies, Issue 2, 2000.
