9781780526621: Rethinking Misbehavior and Resistance in Organizations (Advances in Industrial and Labor Relations)

This volume challenges understandings of organizational misbehavior by looking beyond traditional conceptions of the nexus between misbehavior and resistance in the workplace. Reconsidering misbehavior from a range of different perspectives and disciplinary traditions, including employment relations, entrepreneurship, management, marketing, organizational behavior and sociology, chapters examine behaviors not only of workers but also of managers, entrepreneurs and consumers. The book begins with an overview by one of the leading scholars of misbehavior, Stephen Ackroyd. The remainder of the book traverses dimensions of misbehavior and resistance across time and geographical space through a number of case studies that examine behaviors in a range of different places, industries and sectors. In this way it extends analysis beyond the traditional focus on workers to actors who have largely been excluded from attention in existing studies.

Review:

This collection of ten essays explores the intersections between misbehavior in organizations and concerted activity resisting a perceived wrong. They are written from a variety of perspectives, from employee to employer, consumer to manager, sociological and entrepreneurial. Some explore representations of misbehavior in film, others on the relationship between the labeling of misbehavior and political repression, and still others on how customers cheat companies. Not all essays look at resistance to organizational demands as misbehavior, while one explores 'entrepreneurship as misbehavior.' Technology has both made certain kinds of misbehavior untenable, while opening up new terrain for slacking and stealing, particularly on the Internet. The contributors are professors of marketing, management, and business. No index has been provided. Distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution. --Book News Inc. Portland, OR

Book Description Emerald Publishing Limited, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. This volume challenges understandings of organizational misbehavior by looking beyond traditional conceptions of the nexus between misbehavior and resistance in the workplace. Reconsidering misbehavior from a range of different perspectives and disciplinary traditions, including history, employment relations, sociology, management, entrepreneurship, marketing, legal studies and film studies, chapters examine behaviors not only of workers but also of managers, entrepreneurs and consumers. The book begins with an overview by one of the leading scholars of misbehavior, Stephen Ackroyd, who reviews the study of the phenomenon, followed by conceptual reconsideration of the relationship between misbehavior and resistance in a changing industrial landscape. The remainder of the book traverses dimensions of misbehavior and resistance across time and geographical space through a number of case studies that examine behaviors in a range of different places, industries and sectors. In this way it extends analysis to actors outside of the workers who have largely been the focus of existing studies. The volume will add to the emerging body of evidence that disturbs assumptions of consensus and conformity in organizations. Bookseller Inventory # TNP9781780526621
