Samenvatting

The book that defined the field, updated and expanded for today's organizations

'Organizational Culture and Leadership' is the classic reference for managers and students seeking a deeper understanding of the inter-relationship of organizational culture dynamics and leadership. Author Edgar Schein is the 'father' of organizational culture, world-renowned for his expertise and research in the field; in this book, he analyzes and illustrates through cases the abstract concept of culture and shows its importance to the management of organizational change. This new fifth edition shows how culture has become a popular concept leading to a wide variety of research and implementation by various organizations and expands the focus on the role of national cultures in influencing culture dynamics, including some practical concepts for how to deal with international differences.

Special emphasis is given to how the role of leadership varies with the age of the organization from founding, through mid-life to old age as the cultural issues vary at each stage. How culture change is managed at each stage and in different types of organizations is emphasized as a central concern of leader behavior..

This landmark book is considered the defining resource in the field. Drawing on a wide range of research, this fifth edition contains 25 percent new and revised material to provide the most relevant new concepts and perspectives alongside the basic culture model that has helped to define the field.

Dig into assumptions and typologies to decipher organizational culture
- Learn how culture begins, thrives, or dies with leadership
- Manage cultural change effectively and appropriately
- Understand the leader's role in managing disparate groups

The resurgence of interest in organizational culture has spurred an awakening in research, and new information is continuously coming to light. Outdated practices are being replaced by more effective methods, and the resulting shift affects organizations everywhere. Organizational Culture and Leadership is an essential resource for scholars, consultants and leaders seeking continuous improvement in the face of today's business realities.

Organizational Culture and Leadership
Anouk Folstar | 22 juli 2015
Ben je op zoek naar achtergrondinformatie, een theoretische onderbouwing of context tijdens of voorafgaand aan een cultuurveranderingstraject in de organisatie? Dan is Schein de man om te lezen. Het boek leest gemakkelijk weg, hoewel het meer een naslagwerk is dan een managementboek, geschikt voor zowel adviseur als manager/bestuurder.

Organizational Culture and Leadership
Friso van Abbema | 3 oktober 2008
'Organizational culture and leadership' van Edgar H. Schein is als 'third edition' in 2004 uitgebracht. Dit klassieke werk beschrijft de veelvormigheid van het fenomeen dat we cultuur noemen. Het betoog van Schein is dat de cultuur en leiderschap van een organisatie twee zijden van dezelfde medaille zijn. Hij benoemt als kerntaak van leiders dat ze de cultuur van hun organisatie begrijpen, benutten en zo nodig veranderen.

Over Edgar Schein

Edgar H. Schein is hoofddocent en emeritus-hoogleraar management aan de Sloan School of Management van het Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Hij deed in 1947 kandidaats onderwijskunde aan de universiteit van Chicago, aan de Stanford-universiteit doctoraal sociale psychologie, en promoveerde in 1952 aan de Harvard-universiteit in de sociale psychologie. Zijn belangrijkste onderzoeksactiviteiten speelden zich af op een groot aantal terreinen, en liepen uiteen van onderzoek naar de hersenspoeling van krijgsgevangenen in Korea en China, managementdevelopment en socialisering van organisaties, tot en met een diepgaande studie van carrières in het management. Zijn belangstelling voor de cultuur kwam in de eerste plaats voort uit zijn klinisch werk binnen organisaties waarin de cultuur buitengewoon duidelijk zichtbaar was. Hij is mede-redacteur van de prestigieuze reeks uitgaven over organisatieontwikkeling van Addison-Wesley (een initiatief van Richard Beckhard en Warren Bennis uit 1969). Andere recente boeken van hem zijn onder andere 'Process Consultation Revisited: Building the Helping Relationship' (1999), 'Career Survival' (Jossey-Bass Pfeiffer, 1993), en 'Organizational Culture and Leadership (tweede druk, Jossey-Bass, 1992). Schein was van 1972 tot 1981 voorzitter van de vakgroep organisatieonderzoek van de Sloan School of Management en is ten aanzien van cultuur, organisatie- en loopbaanontwikkeling adviseur geweest van een hele reeks organisaties overal ter wereld. Hij is Fellow van de American Psychological Association en de Academy of management, lid van de raad van bestuur van de Sciety for Organizational Learning en oprichter van Reflections: The SOL Journal. Hij geldt als een van de grondleggers van organisatiepsychologie.
