A critical introduction to Organisation Theory that you can understand, apply and enjoy! This book addresses fundamental questions such as what is organisation theory and why does it matter. It explores the historical development of organization theory from its origins right up to present-day debates. It asks what challenges it presents to contemporary organisations, and explores the solutions it can provide. Organization Theory brings a fresh approach to long-standing questions and is aimed at undergraduate and postgraduate students for whom the study of organizational theory or analysis is an integral part of their degree programme.
