The second edition of this textbook for organizational management begins with an overview of managing an individual within an organization and then adopts a broad survey of organizational practices and the management of structures and processes. Clegg (management, U. of Technology, Sydney), Kornberger (management, U. of St. Andrews) and Pitsis (senior research associate, U. of Technology, Sydney) use case studies, exercises and a "What's the Point?" section to underline the principles of organization behavior to review such concepts as managing innovation and change, diversity and retention in human resources, ethics, isomorphism and globalization. A companion website offers additional journal articles, case studies and web resources.
