An ideal companion to more conventional case studies and textbooks, Experiencing Organizations brings together a fascinating collection of real-life stories about individual work experiences in industrialized societies at this turn of the millennium. Told through the fresh eyes of new organizational recruits, these sometimes comic, often traumatic, but always revealing accounts have much to say to new learners and older hands alike. Grouped in sections on images, winning and losing, and surviving, the narratives encompass a wide range of themes and issues, including power and politics in organizations, organizational cultures and change, gender and discrimination, and appearances and realities. The cold features of business are detailed in which processes such as restructuring, rationalization, and downsizing are increasingly complex. Full of the kind of detail that is often unreported, Experiencing Organizations is recounted with passion and authenticity. This volume is an outstanding resource for students of organizational behavior and theory, organizational and occupational psychology, and general management studies.
