Power, politics, and organizational change : winning the turf game by David A Buchanan( )

25 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 1,197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Power, Politics, and Organizational Change is a theoretical and practical guide to the politics of change. It focuses on the internal change agent, rather than with external consultants, as change is a key element in the roles of all managers. A fresh perspective is developed, emphasizing the context in which the change agent operates: explicit and tacit warrants for particular actions, skills in accounting for one's political behaviour, and the reputation of the change agent."--Jacket

The New management challenge : information systems for improved performance by David Boddy( Book )

15 editions published between 1988 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume, first published in 1988, examines the challenge to management which is posed by ever more sophisticated applications of information technology. It reports on cases of actual practice, and seeks to draw lessons from these experiences which will be of practical value to managers and their advisers. The book will also be a useful source of ideas, experience, and examples to students of economics, business studies, and management."--Provided by publisher
Unconventional methodology in organization and management research by Alan Bryman( )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most researchers in organization and management studies stick to two or three traditional research methods like surveys and interviews. Sticking with the familiar is seen as a safe bet, and innovation is discouraged by academic incentives and rewards. But research participants are now suffering from 'survey fatigue', and using the same old methods runs the risk of generating the same old findings. This book describes twelve unconventional methodologies in organization and management research. These include unconventional research settings and data sources, unconventional research designs and data collection methods, unconventional analytic approaches, and designs and methods that exploit new technology developments. The aim is to encourage dialogue and experimentation with regard to the development of innovative, unconventional approaches to organization and management research. Several commentators have criticized the way in which research methods have become more formulaic, and have argued for greater diversity in research approaches. The methodological perspective that the we adopt shapes our interpretation of the information that we gather. Different methods generate different kinds of information, leading to different ways of understanding the phenomena that we are investigating. Our methods influence our styles of theorizing, ways of thinking and reasoning, and forms of writing and reporting research. This book will be of value to academic researchers in organization and management studies, Doctoral candidates, and Masters students on MBA and similar programmes."--
