Elgar Research Agendas outline the future of research in a given area.Outlining the future and the state of the art, this comprehensive and innovative book is an essential resource for students and academics seeking to be at the forefront of future research in management and organization studies.
This book offers a succinct but comprehensive introduction to the vast field of organizational discourse analysis, the approach that studies organization as a linguistic phenomenon, and offers an original approach to investigate the relationship between materiality and discourse.
The origins of organizing are conventionally seen as emerging from the historiographical works of Western social scientists in the early 20th century. Here, the authors address a gap in current literature by exploring previously unrecognized or marginalized global origins in both modern and ancient history.
This volume explores key concepts that have gained currency in organization studies, and revisits traditional concepts such as change, strategy, and organization. It discusses organizational knowledge, judgment, and reflection-in-action, and suggests complex forms of theorizing that do justice to the complexity of organizations.
It is focussed on helping students to develop the key skills they will need as future managers and employees. It is aimed primarily at first and second year undergraduate students on Business and Management degrees, who are taking OB modules for the first time, though could also be used on postgraduate and MBA courses.
A comprehensive textbook, completely refreshed to engage students through real life case studies and develop their critical thinking. A new title to reflect the focus on organisational behaviour and written specifically for undergraduate first year students.
With a strong emphasis on reflectivity and reflexivity, this book provides placement students with a guide to critically studying an organization from the inside, and is particularly suited to those needing to do a reflective journal or essay as part of their studies.
