Power, Politics and Organizational Change by David Buchanan

Book Description

'Many books on management are sanitized, cleanly technical accounts of the unreality of managerial life and work. Politics hardly feature. This book tells it like it is: it dishes the dirt, gets low-down, into the funky and fascinating politics of organizational life' - Stewart Clegg, Aston Business School and University of Technology, Sydney Most managers view organization politics as a routine part of their job, and as an important contributor to career success, as well as to personal and organizational performance. This eagerly anticipated Second Edition has been updated to reflect new research and current perspectives on this integral part of organizational life. Power, Politics, and Organizational Change focuses on the manager acting as internal change agent. The authors emphasize the context in which managers initiate change, how this is achieved, and how actions are accounted for. New material includes a chapter on gender differences in approaches to organization politics, challenging the traditional stereotypes of 'men are bad but bold and women are wonderful but weak', and arguing that women also need to be skilled organization politicians.Comments from management interviews, and suggestions for analysing films and television programmes make ideas come alive for the reader. Self-assessments, organization diagnostics, case studies, and incident analyses at the end of each chapter ask readers to consider their own experiences of organization politics, and to consider their skills as a political entrepreneur.
