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

41 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 1,871 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 mechanisms of governance by Oliver E Williamson( )

40 editions published between 1996 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 1,588 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

This long-awaited sequel to the modem classic "Markets and Hierarchies" develops and extends Williamson's innovative use of transaction cost economics as an approach to studying economic organization by applying it to work and labor as well as the corporation itself. In addition, Williamson explores its growing implications for public policy, including its potential influence on antitrust and merger guidelines, labor policy, and SEC and public utility regulations

The Nature of the firm : origins, evolution, and development by Sidney G Winter( Book )

34 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 920 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"R.H. Coase in his 1991 Nobel Prize Lecture--included in this paperback edition--held that the importance of his 1937 article, "The Nature of the Firm," was "the explicit introduction of transaction costs into economic analysis," and described the future challenge to social scientists as the relentless "study of the world of positive transaction costs." This book develops that central emphasis and unifying theme from the Coasian research agenda. Book jacket."--Jacket

The economic analysis of institutions and organisations, in general and with respect to country studies by Oliver E Williamson( Book )

19 editions published in 1993 in English and German and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Institutional questions have become increasingly prominent in the evaluation of nearly every area of structural policy. The present article shows how formal economic analysis may be brought to bear on the problem of understanding institutions. It begins by reviewing the recent history of thought on the economics of organisations. It then outlines the fundamentals of transactions cost economics, a branch of economic theory which views organisations as a response to competitive pressures to align different ways of channelling or "governing" a transaction -- these governance forms include market, hybrid or hierarchy -- with the transactions requirements of different economic sectors. The paper then demonstrates the applicability of this theory, which represents a significant departure from the neo-classical theory of the firm, in such diverse areas as intermediate product markets, corporate finance and governance, the modern corporation, regulation and deregulation and the failure of

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 147 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 --
