Description - Managers Learning in Action by David Coghlan

Managers Learning in Action takes a wholly original approach to organizational learning. Rather than offering either a purely practical or theoretical context, this text is written by a team of managers and academics, combining theory and practice to create a holistic, and above all realistic, exploration of learning at work. The managers writing in this text offer real life examples of management challenges they have met. Whether rescuing an ailing organization or managing inter-organization relations, managing change or managing human resources, many of today's crucial management challenges are addressed. Covering a range of sectors, the organizations studied include those in: * hi-tech manufacturing * engineering * telecommunications * healthcare * transport * government agencies. Contributors are drawn from three well-established academic programmes: the Irish Management Institute/ University of Dublin Masters in Management Practice; the US Benedictine University PhD in Organizational Development and the Henley Management College DBA. The volume is edited by the academic directors of these programmes. By offering these managers' own reflections on their experiences in the context of relevant management theory, this text provides an important and innovative contribution both for those studying organizations and for those managers who are currently learning and developing at work.
