This handy compendium gives easy access to the principal ideas of the leading authorities, while brief, clear resumes bring out the main thrust of their thinking. This fifth edition of an evergreen resource for student and manager alike adds Charles Handy, Andrew Pettigrew, Gareth Morgan, Karl E. Weick, Peter Senge, Paul J. DiMaggio and Walter W. Powell, and Christopher Bartlett and Sumantra Ghoshal to the wide range of experts whose work is summarized. The authors cover a range of topics from the structure and national and international environments of organizations to management problems, and from managerial decision-making and influence to people problems and organizational change and learning. Derek S. Pugh and David J. Hickson have created a classic work that accompanies executives on management courses and helps management students in writing essays and exams. It has been translated into numerous languages worldwide. A companion volume, organization Theory, edited by Derek S. Pugh, is also published by Penguin.
