Missing organizational linkages : tools for cross-level research by Paul S Goodman( Book )

10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Paul Goodman presents an innovative approach for analyzing and understanding organizations. He asks the question: How do actions among individuals and groups affect (or not affect) organizations as a whole? He challenges the view that improvement in individual or group performance necessarily "links" to enhanced organizational functioning. Clearly written in a conversational style, the book is filled with rich examples chosen to illustrate different views of the linkage concepts within different domains and contexts. A significant contribution to management education, the book is recommended for researchers, graduate students, organizational consultants, practitioners, and research libraries."--Jacket
