Award-winning author Richard L. Daft's Organization Theory and Design (ISBN 9780324598896) is an engaging reference filled with solid information. It discusses real-life companies / organizations and how they achieve success with the use of effective business practices rooted on theories. Well-organized and systematic, this book relates time-tested principles to current examples. It starts off with an introduction to organization theory and design, and then continues on to organizational strategy and structure, external factors and design, managing organizational processes, and internal factors and design. The author discusses the arrangement of reporting relationships, strategy and effectiveness, relationships between organizations, global organization and design, and the impact of environment. Topics such as organizational conflict and politics, organizational decision-making, corporate culture and values, organizational innovation, information and control processes, organization size and life cycle, and workplace technology and design are also discussed. Some of the companies featured in the book include Cisco Systems, Barnes & Noble, Volvo, Disney/Pixar, and BP. Students will be able to see firsthand how these organizations cope in the ever changing and highly competitive environment (both local and international). Organization Theory and Design remains useful beyond the classroom. Author Richard L. Daft is a professor at Vanderbilt University's Owen Graduate School of Management. He is also part of the Academy of Management and has written several well-received business books. Often described as one of the ‘most cited' writers in management, he has made significant contributions to the fields of organization behavior and design, and has authored best-selling books on business.
