Organization Renewal; Achieving Viability in a Changing World.
Lippitt, Gordon L.
Drawing on behavioral and management science, this book points out the necessity for organizations to re-examine their objectives on behalf of their members, clients, and employees. Part One covers organizations as Socio-technical systems; Part two discusses organizations as people at work (motivation, personality, leadership, and work groups); and Part Three covers the process of interfacing (dialogue, confrontation, problem solving, and ethical implications). Parts Four and Five cover conditions, skills, and actions in organizational renewal and resources for it. (NL)
