Description - Thinking About Management by David H. Golding
This book is an invitation to engage in an exploration of some of the more puzzling aspects of the processes which have come to be called 'management'. It aims to provide a comprehensive but focused collection of readings to support and encourage wider consideration of alternative ways of thinking about management, and its effectiveness, in contemporary organisations.
Aimed particularly at the advanced management student, key features of this text include: * a selection of contributions which derive from historically grounded and politically aware considerations, examining alternative approaches to understanding management, drawing on a wider source of perspectives than those which currently dominate management literature * an exploration of the uncertainties and apparent contradictions encountered in management action, grounded in the reflective practices of the contributors, employing examples and experiences from a wide range of organizations * ideas which are fundamental to understanding the complexities of management which will extend students' own ways of thinking about management * an informed contextual approach to the study of management, grouping together themes and ideas which aim to shed light upon the contested arenas of management action. By placing emphasis upon the development of improved critical abilities in management practice, Thinking About Management will be an invaluable text for all management studies and MBA students.
