Organization theory : from Chester Barnard to the present and beyond by Oliver E Williamson( Book )

31 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 991 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of papers is edited by renowned business thinker Oliver Williamson, who is currently Transamerica Professor of Corporate Strategy at the School of Business Administration at Berkeley. The fiftieth anniversary of the publication of Chester I. Barnard's remarkable and still influential book, The Functions of the Executive, was celebrated with a seminar series at the University of California, Berkeley in the Spring of 1988. Eight of those lectures are published here. The contributors include organization specialists and sociologists (Barbara Levitt and James March; W. Richard Scott; Glenn Carroll; Jeffrey Pfeffer), an anthropologist, a political scientist, and two economists (Mary Douglas; Terry Moe; Oliver Hart; Oliver Williamson). An important contribution to organization theory, this volume reports on recent progress in this field, and projects a productive research future
The Nature of the firm : origins, evolution, and development by Sidney G Winter( Book )

31 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and held by 911 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1937, Ronald H. Coase published "The Nature of the Firm," a classic paper that raised fundamental questions about the concept of the firm in economic theory. Coase proposed that the comparative costs of organizing transactions through markets rather than within firms are the primary determinants of the size and scope of firms. Coase won the 1991 Nobel Prize in Economics for this work. This volume derives from a conference held in 1987 to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of Coase's classic article. The first chapter affords an overview of the volume. It is followed by a republication of the 1937 article, and by the three lectures Coase presented at the conference. These lectures provide a lively and informative history of the origins and development of his thought. Subsequent chapters explore a wide-range of theoretical and empirical issues that have arisen in the transaction cost economic tradition. They illustrate the power of the transaction cost approach to enhance understanding not only of business firms, but of problems of economic organization generally. In addition to Coase's work, contributors include Sherwin Rosen, Paul Joskow, Oliver Hart, Harold Demsetz, Scott Masten, Benjamin Klein, as well as the volume's editors, Oliver E. Williamson, and Sidney G. Winter. The Nature of the Firm includes Coase's acceptance speech for his Nobel Prize in Economics
The mechanisms of governance by Oliver E Williamson( Book )

31 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Transaction cost economics has had a pervasive influence on current economic thought about how and why institutions function as they do, and it has become a practical framework for research in organizations by representatives of a variety of disciplines. Through a transaction cost analysis, The Mechanisms of Governance shows how and why simple contracts give way to complex contracts and internal organization as the hazards of contracting build up. That complicates the study of economic organization, but a richer and more relevant theory of organization is the result. Many testable implications and lessons for public policy accrue to this framework. Applications of both kinds are numerous and growing

Transaction cost economics by Oliver E Williamson( Book )

34 editions published between 1986 and 2016 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This overview of transaction cost economics is organized around the "Carnegie Tripleʺ be disciplined; be interdisciplinary; have an active mind. The first of these urges those who would open up the black box of economic organization to do so in a modest, slow, molecular, definitive way, with the object of deriving refutable implications and submitting these to empirical testing. The second recommends that the student of economic organization be prepared to cross disciplinary boundaries if and as this is needed to preserve veridical contact with the phenomena. The injunction have an active mind is implemented by being curious and asking the question "What is going on here?ʺ The paper concludes with a discussion of operationalization

The transaction cost economics project : the theory and practice of the governance of contractual relations by Oliver E Williamson( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'As recognized by the Economics Sciences Prize Committee in awarding the 2009 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics, Oliver Williamson altered irreversibly the way we approach and analyze organization. But such is the depth of Williamson insights that often his contributions can only be fully appreciated in the context of real world organizational phenomena. It is thus not uncommon that, after struggling with some particularly thorny problem of economic organization, I will discover on rereading a familiar piece that Williamson had anticipated and already addressed the subject of my efforts. This collection contains the articles and chapters to which I most frequently return and provides the essential readings for anyone seriously interested in the science of organization.' - Scott Masten, University of Michigan, US 'The presence of transaction costs greatly modifies the traditional picture of the allocation of resources through the market. It gives rise to many phenomena inexplicable in the simple market view and to problems of government policy. Oliver Williamson has been a leading figure in this analysis. His interpretations of corporate governance and of the complementarity between internal controls and the market have been the most profound in the literature. It is good that his leading essays are now available in collected form.' - Kenneth J. Arrow, Stanford University, US 'Oliver Williamson's contributions to economics are certainly among the most important of past several decades, and their importance will be increasingly recognized as economists come to grips with all that he has accomplished. This collection provides an unparalleled view of those contributions, and it belongs on the bookshelf of everyone who wants to understand complex economic transactions.' - David Kreps, Stanford University, US 'This book provides a terrific opportunity to have a collection of Oliver Williamson's best papers on transaction cost economics all in one convenient volume.' - Paul L. Joskow, Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and MIT, US 'Williamson's work on transaction cost economics has shaped the thinking of all social scientists about organizations and institutions. This volume reprints many of his seminal papers on the subject, and is valuable both as commemoration and for reference.' - Avinash Dixit, Princeton University, US --
