Description - Neo-Industrial Organising by Eskil Ekstedt
Much discussion among researchers and academics has focused on the ongoing transition to a new economy and to a new society. Popular terms to describe this transition have been post-industrial society, information society and late capitalism. Yet, perhaps the most profound changes have concerned the way in which economic activities are organised in industry as well as elsewhere. Neo-Industrial Organising explores an emerging area of importance in management and organisation studies, namely the trend towards a projectization of the economy as a whole and the inter- and intra-organisational relations of renewal projects. By reporting on the experiences of twenty-five renewal projects from a wide variety of both local and international organisations, the authors develop a theoretical framework based on action and knowledge, in order to answer such key questions as: What is neo-industrial management? What does the future hold for organisations? How will institutions be formed? What effects will neo-industrial organising have on the individual and his/her work situation?
Topics covered include: * industrial renewal, organisation and management * project management and temporary organisation * personnel recruitment, selection and training * societal infrastructure Distinctive, relevant and accessibly written, this book will interest researchers and students in the field of organisational behaviour.
