Offering students and practitioners an applied approach to the subject, Organizational Culture in Action (OCA) walks them through a six-step model for analyzing an organization's culture to provide insight into positive communication practices to improve organizational ethics and effectiveness. The authors review relevant theory while integrating a constitutive approach to studying organizational culture and communication. Practical guides for multiple data collection methods are provided, and the workbook format is full of interactive tools that engage students and reinforce learning. The revised OCA cultural analysis model in this edition provides the below elements. * The revised first step in the model - "articulating the value of cultural analysis" includes connections to public relations and crisis management. * A definition of communication and the analysis process that foregrounds ethics throughout the book is included. * Recent research on organizational moral learning is integrated in the ethics chapter, and throughout the book. * The Communicative Constitutive of Organizations is now foregrounded throughout the book, and reflected in a table capturing variable and metaphor approaches to culture. * The latest applied research is integrated in units on diversity, change, leadership, and effectiveness in relation to positive organizational communication. * Enriched guides on multiple data collection methods now includes surveys. * Cases, examples, and applications relevant to crisis, employee engagement, virtual organizations, conflict management, and public relations are provided. Professionals come away equipped to apply cultural insights to fostering inclusiveness in relation to diversity, supporting organizational change, making leadership more dynamic, understanding the link between ethics and culture, and achieving personal and professional growth.

"Organizational Culture in Action is one of my critical go-to workbooks for leadership education because it provides practical and ethical real-world steps for diagnosing organizational culture, including diversity and inclusion practices. Highly readable, it offers numerous exemplar questions and recommendations for connecting theory and practice to sustain and transform today's organizations." - Elisabeth E. Bennett, Ph.D., Northeastern University, USA

"I have used Organizational Culture in Action to teach the capstone course in the Organizational Communication undergraduate program for five years. My students and I find the book nicely balanced between theory and methods and ideal for those seeking to learn how to conduct organizational ethnography." - Elena Gabor, Bradley University, USA

"While maintaining an academic focus the text offers a unique contribution through the practical exercises and checks on learning designed to stimulate and engage the reader. The format makes it an ideal companion for individuals or groups who are undertaking a cultural analysis in organizations, or for the purpose of corporate training and development." - Nicholas Jackson, University of Leeds, UK

"This volume admirably balances treatment of related concepts and theories with systematic support for student completion of empirical research. The writing is accessible, and the overall approach makes for interesting - and even fun - work with students." - Bryan C. Taylor, University of Colorado Boulder, USA

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.

Bitte beachten Sie bei der Verwendung der Lese-Software Adobe Digital Editions: wir empfehlen Ihnen unbedingt nach Installation der Lese-Software diese mit Ihrer persönlichen Adobe-ID zu autorisieren!
