Motivation in work organizations by Edward E Lawler( Book )

30 editions published between 1973 and 1994 in 3 languages and held by 1,086 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written with the student audience in mind, this book is about the motivational determinants of behavior in work organizations. For practicing managers, helpful information may be found in the chapters dealing with day-to-day motivational problems. Three chapters deal specifically with motivational theory, and five chapters emphasize research and practice in motivation, since the book is primarily directed to the undergraduate or graduate student. Four approaches to motivation are emphasized as styles of management practice: paternalistic approach, scientific management approach, participative management, and a fourth called the combination approach. The contents of the book are structured within the framework of the following chapters: motivation and behavior in work organizations; drives, needs, and outcomes; motivation and behavior; satisfaction and behavior; the decision to work in an organization; extrinsic rewards and job performance; job design and job performance; interpersonal influences; and an overview of motivation in organizations.

The ultimate advantage : creating the high-involvement organization by Edward E Lawler( Book )

11 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 1,004 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1986 Edward Lawler alerted American business to the power of the high-involvement organization--one that fosters quick adaptation and change through fewer levels of hierarchy and satisfying work relationships. The logic is simple and the results indisputable: people give more to their work when they have more say in how the company is run. Now Lawler, called "one of today's most prominent scholars" in management literature by Choice magazine, shows us that high-involvement is not just a good idea--it's an economic necessity. Rather than try to copy other nations' management styles, Lawler says, organizations should develop approaches rooted in their own cultures. He explains, "We need an alternative to the total quality management approach that builds on many of its key elements but goes beyond it to provide a competitive advantage for organizations in societies that are characterized by diversity, democracy, entrepreneurial behavior, and respect for the individual."

Corporate boards : strategies for adding value at the top by Jay Alden Conger( Book )

11 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Corporate Boards, the authors explore the roles that corporate governance will play in the twenty-first-century organization and identify the key practices that make a board effective. Questioning the long-held assumption that boards are solely responsible to shareholders, the authors propose that the focus of judging a board's success should move from a shareholder to a stakeholder point of view. The authors then go well beyond the issue of board accountability; they examine boards from a group and organizational effectiveness perspective and propose a framework that centers on what really influences effective governance behavior - information, knowledge, power, rewards, and opportunity."--Jacket
Built to change : how to achieve sustained organizational effectiveness by Edward E Lawler( Book )

20 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, organizational effectiveness experts Edward Lawler and Christopher Worley show how organizations can be "built to change" so they can last and succeed in today's global economy. Instead of striving to create a highly reliable Swiss watch that consistently produces the same behavior, they argue organizations need to be designed in ways that stimulate and facilitate change." "Built to Change focuses on identifying practices and designs that organizations can adopt so that they are able to change. Built to Change is filled with illustrative examples from companies - Procter & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, Limited Brands, and Toyota - that have been able to change time and again to meet changing business demands. The book outlines what it takes to become an organization that continuously and rapidly changes. It includes information about creating strategies, structures, reward systems, communication processes, and human resource management practices that are designed to facilitate the ability of an organization to change. Built to Change includes an online instructor's guide."--Jacket
