This comprehensive reference work summarizes and reinterprets research, and suggests applications got the design of organizations. Scholars and professionals, from the United States, Europe, and other countries, present the contributions to organization theory of management science, political science, economics, sociology, systems engineering, psychology, history, and anthropology. The chapters draw examples from a large number of diverse industries and governmental activities, and they discuss design alternatives which should prove valuable for planning, redesign, and the continuing operations of organizations. Volume 2 focuses on proceses of change within organizations, including control systems, interdepartmental relations, and job design. Contributors also discuss the effects, both planned and accidental, that organizations have upon their environments, and they analyze the relationships between organizations, governments, and societies.
