Deframing organization concepts
This book aims to scrutinize the quality of organization concepts, such as the learning organization, self-managing teams-50, organizational culture and climate, customer-friendly organizations, old and new leadership approaches, etc., by checking how concepts have been - and are being - defined and constructed, as well as the quality of the frameworks (theories, paradigms) to which they are connected.
- Where is this proliferation and variation of concepts taking us, theoretically and practically?
- What is the value of these concepts?
- Do they increase our understanding, do they have any analytical power and/or are they of practical use?
