Managing for the Future: Organizational Behavior & Processes


More Description

This text is based on the innovative and acclaimed course taught at MIT. The modular approach of the text's content allows adopters the freedom to select only those modules they wish to include in the course. Managing for the Future begins by setting the 'new' organization (a flat, flexible, networked and diverse entity) as the context in which managerial action takes place. The rest of the text works through teams, organizations, and skills. The three lenses (strategic design, political, and cultural) are used to analyze organizations and plan action. The goal is not only to describe the organization of the future, but also show readers how to become better actors within it.
