Images of Organization

SAGE Publications, 9 may. 2006 - 504 páginas
6 Reseñas
Since its first publication over twenty years ago, Images of Organization has become a classic in the canon of management literature.

Gareth Morgan provides a rich and comprehensive resource for exploring the complexity of modern organizations internationally, translating leading-edge theory into leading-edge practice.
