Organizational Misbehaviour by Stephen Ackroyd

Book Description

'[A] textbook specifically aimed at organizational misbehaviour...it certainly fills a gap...containing a large survey of academic literature on the subject. The book is good: it brings to light subjects which are too often negleced, and it provides an understanding of phenomena which are so common in organizations, but at the same time so vague and incomprehensible' Organization Studies From 'soldiering' and absenteeism to humour in organizations and the emergence politics of sexuality, this book explores the latest forms of organizational subversion and offers fresh insights of the underlying dynamics of management and organizational processes. The book opens with a critique of orthodox organizational analysis and maps out the wide terrain across which organizational 'misbehaviour' occurs. The authors go on to examine the interconnections between identity formation, the pursuit of autonomy and organizational misbehaviour, and explore how clearly the tendency to misbehave is deeply embedded in organizational life.
