Description - Understanding Organizations through Language by Suzanne Tietze
Offering a viable alternative to 'functional' approaches to communication based around the metaphor of 'webs of meaning' and which uses semiology as its theoretical bedrock. The authors provide examples and argue how and why this approach is useful in understanding communicative processes. This approach is applied to areas of interest, including: metaphor, story-telling, discourse, gender, leadership and electronic communication. Written in a sophisticated, yet approachable style, the book is complemented by a range of examples, activities and mini case studies. Also included are chapter summaries and further reading suggestions, making this a useful text for both academics and students.
