The Dynamic Workplace: Present Structure and Future Redesign

The Dynamic Workplace: Present Structure and Future Redesign Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The complexity and dynamism of organizations make them difficult to understand and manage. This book presents the workings and designs of organizations and identifies the types of problems encountered by organizational workers. Allcorn provides an essential focus on dynamic workplace theory, questioning the current and future value of today's bureaucratic, hierarchic organizational structure. Allcorn advocates a shared theoretical perspective that is clear and comprehensive. His theory explains organizational life, encompassing four types of work experience: chaotic, bureaucratic, charismatic, and balanced. He proposes an organizational design that eschews positions of authority and power and eliminates severe, often hindering bureaucracy. Clear and comprehensible without being simplistic, the book offers insights into how organizations actually function and proposes ways to intervene when organizations grow stale, become self-defeating in their missions, or develop into hostile environments for their employees. The insights and ideas presented here are of considerable and enduring importance to corporate trainers, consultants, group process experts, governmental agencies and entities, executives at all levels, academics, and students of organizational life and its various processes.

Book News Annotation:

Consultant Allcorn introduces the scholarly notion of organizational dynamics to help managers understand the complexity of the workplace. He also offers his own approach to organizational design and operation for managers to try, warning that it is only theory until someone risks their business to see whether it works.
