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:

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