Book Description:

Based on his early classic, Organization, John Child's new book provides a current, comprehensive guide to organizational management in today's world. Organization: Problems and Practice for Our Times sets out the key principles and practice for managing a competitive organization in the context of global competition, new information technologies, emerging markets, and new flexible working practices. The book draws attention to the exciting possibilities currently arising in organizations as the conditions for their survival change. Its analysis covers a broad range of topics, from flexibility and boundaries to trust and knowledge management. As in his previous title, Child addresses the issues in terms of how managers experience them.

In addition each chapter contains relevant diagrams and charts, summaries of key points, lists of practical guidelines, questions for discussion, and suggestions for further reading.
