Corporate cultures: the rites and rituals of corporate life.
"Corporate Cultures: The Rites and Rituals of Corporate Life' (Reading, Mass., Addison-Wesley, 1982) by Terrence Deal and Allan Kennedy makes a good companion book to "In Search of Excellence.' This exploration of company networks, hierarchies, and workplace role-playing will open your eyes to the unwritten rules and subtle group behavior patterns around you.
It can also help you evaluate your role in the lab and the institution, and decide whether a particular organization is one you really want to work for. Anyone interested in the psychological dymanics of people working together should find these concepts fascinating.
