Gareth Morgan believes that examining organizations and management should be interesting, creative, practical, challenging and directly relevant to the needs of both the organization and the researcher. In an ingenious and delightful selection of organizational "stories", Morgan presents unique insights drawn from actual corporate (as well as non-profit, public and institutional) experience. These carefully chosen examples illustrate both organizational successes and failures - because we can learn from both. These "stories" offer the depth and breadth of perspective we have come to expect from Morgan's insightful and often witty framework of organizational analysis. And, they are interwoven with excerpts from many of the "classics" in organizational literature. His aptly-named "Mindstretchers" entices the reader to expand his or her personal repertoire of approaches to the understanding of, and solutions to, organizational problems and challenges. They are followed by cases and exercises - again drawn from both private and public sectors - that challenge us to view organizations in new and different ways. Creative Organization Theory will undoubtedly prove to be a truly `mindstretching' book! This exciting and enjoyable volume is one you'll turn to frequently - whether as a student, a researcher or a manager. It is called a `resource' book for good reason - it's a resource you will use and re-use for many years to come.
