This textbook presents organization theory in an exciting new way, moving away from a traditional linear historical narrative approach, to present students with an approach that offers both relevancy and appeal. The authors take a practice-based approach, identifying questions, problems and issues that are perceived as pertinent by practitioners, and using these as the starting point to identify the relevant theories. This means that students will find it easier to
engage with the material and more attention is paid to issues such as boundary spanning, leadership, quality management, strategic change, and development psychology/organizational learning; areas that are not always covered in other textbooks.
