Organizational Culture and Leadership

Organizational Culture and Leadership

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.

Culture, Leadership, and Organizations

The GLOBE Study of 62 Societies

Culture, Leadership, and Organizations

Culture, Leadership, and Organizations reports the results of a ten-year research program, the Global Leadership and Organizational Behavior Effectiveness (GLOBE) research program. GLOBE is a long-term program designed to conceptualize, operationalize, test, and validate a cross-level integrated theory of the relationship between culture and societal, organizational, and leadership effectiveness. A team of 160 scholars worked together since 1994 to study societal culture, organizational culture, and attributes of effective leadership in 62 cultures. Culture, Leadership, and Organizations: The GLOBE Study of 62 Societies reports the findings of the first two phases of GLOBE. The book is primarily based on the results of the survey of over 17,000 middle managers in three industries: banking, food processing, and telecommunications, as well as archival measures of country economic prosperity and the physical and psychological well-being of the cultures studied.

New Perspectives on Administrative Theory and Practice

Leadership and Organizational Culture

"This volume makes a special contribution to organizational analysis by developing the community element's influence on action and outcomes in organizational settings. To understand the volume is to understand what is meant by the community element and to appreciate its influence on organizational behavior. . . . The issues are whether or not leaders really matter to organizational performance, and if they do, how do they matter? The contributors to this book presume that leaders do matter [but] focus on the issue of how." -- Wall Street Review of Books "A thought-provoking and well-written book that elaborates the view that the three traditional perspectives -- political, management science, and human resources -- are inadequate for the understanding, analysis, and effective management of organizations." -- Harvard Educational Review
