Description

Product Description

Since its first publication over twenty years ago, Images of Organization has become a classic in the canon of management literature. The book is based on a very simple premise—that all theories of organization and management are based on implicit images or metaphors that stretch our imagination in a way that can create powerful insights, but at the risk of distortion. Gareth Morgan provides a rich and comprehensive resource for exploring the complexity of modern organizations internationally, translating leading-edge theory into leading-edge practice.

Review

Professor Morgan,

I only recently received a copy of Images of Organization (updated edition) as a desk copy to review for the I/O Psych class that I teach. I just started reading your book I am absolutely blown away by it. I cannot believe that I had missed this marvelous work. My ignorance knows few, if any, limits!


You pull together such a span of ideas and integrate them beautifully with your own angle, stimulating one′s thinking. This is the kind of mind opening perspective to which I like to expose my classes. Thank you for condensing it so powerfully. By the way, the bibliographic notes are as exciting a read as is the rest of the book. I look forward to devouring the rest of the book.

Morgan''s Images of Organization is a well written book. I purchased this book for a class in Adult Education, and it is remarkably interesting. The book is organized around eleven chapters and a postscript. The most interesting parts of the book are Chapters 2 through 7.

CH 2: Organizations as Machines
CH 3: Organizations as Organisms
CH 4: Organizations as Brains
CH 5: Organizations as Cultures
CH 6: Organizations as Political Systems
CH 7: Organizations as Psychic Prisons

These chapters represent the majority of the material relevant to organizational theory. Anyone who wants to learn more about organizational design should read this book

Informative But confusing
Reviewed in the United States on August 16, 2013
This book was very informative but seemed packed with too much information and at times confusing. If my instructor had not assigned Intro to Public Administration along with this it would have been a little more difficult. Too much for a beginner.

As leadership expert & psychologist I deeply appreciate the multitude of evidence based insights offered in this book about organisations. The book strikes a beautiful balance between sensemaking, understanding and theory, evidence & science. A book that goes beyond recipees and simplicities and that at the same time offers pragmatic insights and frameworks. As Kurt Lewin once said, there is nothing so practical as a good theory. In this (rare) case, I agree.
