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
