Synopsis

This work is based on the premise that all organization and management theories are based on images, or metaphors, with paradoxical effects: they can create insights but also distortions. Gareth Morgan urges managers to select metaphors wisely, use them creatively and find new ways of working.

Der Verlag über das Buch

This pioneering work has now been abridged and revised to increase its accessibility and usefulness for today's practising managers. It shows how managers can broaden and deepen their understanding of organization and organizational problems, and use powerful new metaphors to shape new ways of working.

This new Executive Edition retains all the vitality of the original and has been updated to integrate significant research of the last decade. It provides the kind of organizational `radar' system managers need to negotiate the demands of the 21st century. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

This is a much wellcomed edition of the popular 1st edition. There are many ways to learn/teach organizational theory. If you are a manager or are on your way to become a better and a more effective one, you must be apt to interpret whatever surrounds you in your organization. There are many possible perspectives or lenses from which you may view or analyze what is going on in your organization. Applying more than one multiplies your effectiveness as many times fold. Your organizational life will not be the same after reading this book. And this is just the begining. The same author's Imagin.i.zation expands even more your effectiveness. Other books like Bolman&Deal's Reframing organizations (second edition) serve to give you more lenses through which you may see and analyze your reality that surrounds you everyday. Harmon and Mayer's book on Organizational Theory for Public Administration gives you six more lenses if you are interested in public administration, although Morgan's and Bolman&Deal's also apply as well. My students at Pontifical Catholic University of Peru'MBA program are witness of their more than 20 times as much effectiveness they have adquired in their working lives through exposure to these and other perspectives or lenses.

Strengths and limitations of metaphors. 8. November 2000
Von Turgay BUGDACIGIL - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
"While managing and organizing are challenging in the best times, the difficulties are compounding in today's environment of rapid change. If you want to be the type of leader or professional who helps your organization adapt to the multiple demands of an increasingly turbulent world, you need to become aware of the images and assumptions that are shaping your current thinking and develop the capacity to use new ones. You need to develop competencies that allow you to see, understand, and shape situations in new ways. That is the focus of Images of Organization.It is not a 'quick fix' book. It is not a book that offers a simple recipe for tackling organizational problems...The basic thesis underlying the book is a very simple one: that all organization and management theory and practice is based on images, or metaphors, that lead us to understand situations in powerful yet partial ways. When we realize this, we learn to recognize that our favored ways of managing and organizing often lead us to miss out on other ways of managing and organizing. In addition, we recognize that since every metaphor has limitations as well as strengths, we must always be aware of the inherent blind spots that inevitably undermine our effectiveness" (pp.3-4).
In this context, Garet Morgan divides his book into three parts.
I- In this part, he focuses on the nature of metaphor and its role in understanding organization and management. Here, he argues that using multiple metaphors to understand organization and management gives us a capacity to tap different dimentions of a situation, showing how different qualities of organization can co-exist, supporting, reinforcing, or contradicting one another:
* In approaching the same situation in different ways, metaphors extend insight and suggest actions that may not have been possible before.
* The insights generated by different metaphors are not just theoretical. They are incredibly practical.
* Metaphors lead to new metaphors, creating a mosaic of competing and complementary insights.
II- In this part, he demonstrates how metaphor can be used to develop theories of organization and management. In this sense, he shows strengths and limitations of the following metaphors:machine metaphor, organismic metaphor, brain metaphor, culture metaphor, political metaphor, psychic prison metaphor, flux and transformation metaphor, and dominant metaphor.
III- In this part, by using theoretical ideas/metaphors, he presents a practical case study that illustrates how we can use the metaphors presented in this book as practical frameworks for reading and shaping organizations.
Finally, he argues that Images of Organization is very different from most management books. It has a clear point of view: that metaphor is central to the way we read, understand, and shape organizational life. But at no point will you find that view being brought down to advocacy of a single perspective. There are no right or wrong theories in management in an absolute sense, for every theory illuminates and hides.
Highly recommended.

An outstanding and unique commentary on organizations 19. April 1999
Von wattsgmp@tpgi.com.au - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
What makes this book special is the approach. Morgan considers organizations using different metaphors such as organisations as brains. Each metaphors expands the reader's insight and understanding, and leads to ways of surviving organizational life. This book is a must read text for those studying management or organizational behaviour. All the chapters contain quality references to other work and are backed up by extensive research.

The book is concise and easy to understand, at the same it challenges readers by asking them to thoroughly exame each concept included in the book. Absolutely fantastic - a great leisure time book for the intelligent.
