Product Description

From the Back Cover

Regarded as one of the most influential management books of all time, this fourth and completely updated edition of Edgar Schein's Organizational Culture and Leadership focuses on today's complex business realities and draws on a wide range of contemporary research to demonstrate the crucial role of leaders in applying the principles of culture to achieve their organizational goals.

Edgar Schein explores how leadership and culture are fundamentally intertwined, and reveals key findings about leadership and culture including:

  • Leaders are entrepreneurs and the main architects of culture

  • Once cultures are formed they influence what kind of leadership is possible

If elements of the culture become dysfunctional, it is the leader's responsibility to do something to speed up culture change.

In addition, the book contains new information that reflects culture at different levels of analysis from national and ethnic macroculture to team-based microculture.

Praise for Prior Editions of Organizational Culture and Leadership

"Worth reading again and again and again."
Booklist

"An organizational development pioneer uses an anthropological approach to address a leader's role in shaping group and organizational dynamics."
Knowledge Management

"[Schein] is, to use an overworked word, a guru, the recognized expert in the field."
Inside Business

Format: Hardcover
This is the Fourth Edition of a "business classic" that was first published in 1985. I am always curious to know how a book with a 400-page narrative is organized. In Part I, Schein defines and describes culture as a structural concept; in Part II, he focuses on the content of culture and the process of deciphering assumptions; in Part III, he describes and explains various mechanisms and processes by which culture changes, noting that change in organizational midlife "is primarily a matter of deliberately taking advantage of the diversity that the growth of subcultures makes possible"; in Part IV, he shifts his attention to "the difficult question of how to change culture when the normal evolutionary processes are not working or are too slow; and then in Part V, he shifts his attention again to "many new kinds of work units such as multicultural task forces, v ventures and partnerships, and v networks. These new kinds of organizations will require a different kind of culture management because they will be [begin italics] multi [end italics] cultural. There will also be muticultural challenges that must be met with effective multicultural leadership.

These are among the dozens of passages that caught my eye, also listed to indicate the scope of Schein's coverage.

This is a seminal work, refined over several editions, and incredibly relevant. I taught organizational communication for a few years at the undergrad level. If you`re anywhere near such subject matter, read and re-read this book.
