In recent years global trade and telecommunications have rapidly been spreading the influence of large multinational forms of organization. Alongside this process has been increased interest in organizational cultures' unique to particular firms. In a world where such cultures are often in conflict with the societies in which firms operate, how can we understand cultural transformations? This concise new introductory text provides succint analysis of organizational cultures and the types of change which can be introduced. Culture' is used in an original way to bring together and make sense of central issues of organizational behaviour. The author explores the way in which forms of culture are related to styles of management, attitudes toward leadership, the level of motivation in the workplace and the hidden agenda' in group dynamics. Organizational Cultures shows why the design of organizational structures is constantly changing, and raises the important issue of what common values will enable supra-national organizations to deal with worldwide problems.
Throughout, Diana Pheysey succeeds in weaving together behaviour and organization, thus reconciling the tradition divorce between psychology and sociology in the field.
