This book takes a strategic systems approach -- an approach that focuses on how managers structure and operate organizations so that they are efficient and effective. The focus of the revision is (1) a simplified writing style, one that presents theories in an easily understood manner, and then applies them, and (2) a significant updating of content.From the Back Cover:
The Sixth Edition of Organization Theory: A Strategic Approach continues to present a balance of theory, research, and practice. Theory and research are necessary to provide coherence, certainty, and predictability in an otherwise incoherent, uncertain, and unpredictable world. However, in presenting theory and research, we maintain a belief that theory and research should provide practical value to the inhabitants of organizations—the managers and members of organizations. To accomplish this balance, we have provided numerous examples from organizations to illustrate the theories, concepts, and research findings throughout the text.
