This exploration of organizational theory focuses on the genesis of organizations and the conditions for their continued existence. Drawing upon the classic theories of Marx, Weber and Michels as well as more contemporary developments in organizational theory, Abrahamsson presents his unique theory - that organizations are deliberately designed social structures which have been established by a certain person, group or class in order to implement certain goals. The Logic of Organizations focuses on three critical problem areas of organizations: how to make organizations more efficient; how to make organizations more representative of the interests and objectives of their founders; and how to relieve the problems of bureaucracy, with administrative groups working for their own goals rather than those of the organization.
