Organizations by James G March( Book )

128 editions published between 1958 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 2,037 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mit dem vorliegenden Band wollen wir ein bereits klassisch gewordenes Werk dem deutschen Sprachgebiet zugänglich machen. Das Buch bietet eine Zusammenfassung der bedeutendsten Literatur über Organisationen und versucht einen Überblick über die verschiedenen Organisationstheorien zu geben. Die Autoren übernehmen es, diese Theorien, ihre Bedeurung und ihren Zweck darzulegen und liefern dabei eine eigene Interpretation der grundlegenden Theorien des menschlichen Verhaltens in Organi sationen. Das Buch läßt sich in drei Hauptteile gliedern. Ausgangspunkt bildet die Betrachtung des Indi viduums als Insttument und physiologischer Automat - eine für die "Wissenschaftliche Be triebsführung" typische Ansicht. Anschließend beschäftigen sich die Autoren mit motivationa len und affektiven Aspekten des menschlichen Verhaltens in Organisationen. Dabei stützen sie ihre Aussagen auf umfangreiches empirisches Untersuchungsmaterial. Den Abschluß des Buches bilden Theorien über kognitive Prozesse des organisatorischen Verhaltens. Hier bewegen sie sich zum Teil noch auf reichlich unerforschtem Neuland. Das Buch fUgt sich daher hervorragend in unsere Schriftenreihe ein und - obwohl bereits ein klassisches Werk - ist es eine zeitlose Informationsquelle für den Wissenschaftler, da es eine gedrängte, aber geordnete Zusammenfassung der wichtigsten Organisationstheorien mit Anregungen zu weiterer Forschungstätigkeit bietet, für den Praktiker, da es ihm hilft, die Komplexität moderner Großorganisationen besser zu erkennen, was zu einem besseren Verständnis seiner eigenen Organi sationsprobleme führen kann, für den Studenten, der sich für die soziale Welt der Organisationen, die ja später auch sein Leben beeinflussen werden, interessiert

Democratic governance by James G March( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and Italian and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Going beyond democratic theory, March and Olsen draw on social science to examine how political institutions create and sustain democratic solidarity, identities, capabilities, accounts, and adaptiveness; how they can maintain and elaborate democratic values and beliefs - and how governance might be made honorable, just, and effective. They show how democratic governance is both preactive and reactive - creating interests and power as well as responding to them - and how it shapes not only an understanding of the past and an ability to learn from it, but even history itself. By exploring how governance transcends the creation of coalitions that reflect existing preferences, resources, rights, and rules, the authors reveal how it includes the actual formation of these defining principles of social and political life

The dynamics of rules : change in written organizational codes by James G March( Book )

14 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study uses qualitative and quantitative data from the history of a specific organization, Stanford University, to develop speculations about the ways in which written rules change. It contributes both to a theory of rules and to theories of organizational decision-making change, and learning. Organizations respond to problems and react to internal or external pressures by focusing attention on existing and potential rules. The creation, modification, or elimination of a rule, then, is a response to events in the outside environment (such as new government regulations) or to events within the organization (such as alterations in internal government structures)."--Jacket
On leadership by James G March( Book )

24 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For over 50 years, James March has made a sustained and innovative contribution to the study of organizations. In his renowned course on leadership at Stanford University he explores the problems of leadership using works of great literature, such as War and Peace and Don Quixote. These essays are based on March's previously unpublished lectures and are interpreted and translated by noted scholar, Thierry Weil. March uses literature to examine a set of dilemmas related to leadership - questions concerning the balance between private life and public duties, between ingenuity and innocence, between diversity and integration, and between the expression and the control of sexuality. He encourages us to explore ideas that are sometimes subversive and unpalatable, but may allow organizations to adapt in a rapidly changing world
