In Search of Management : Culture, Chaos and Control in Managerial Work Paperback
By observing the lives and experiences of managers struggling to succeed in a business organization facing major strategic challenges, Tony Watson's book considers basic questions about the nature of management.
Providing a lively, accessible and realistic account of what it is to be a manager, Watson reveals the rewards and pains managers experience as they cope with both traditional business pressures and changing cultures.
The revised edition of this distinctive book places the original ethnographic study in a contemporary business context ensuring that this remains a relevant and insightful account of the daily lives and concerns of managers which can be used to provide a practical element in Management, Organizational Behaviour and Strategy courses at undergraduate and MBA level.
