Publisher's Summary

Reframing Organizations provides time-tested guidance for more effective organizational leadership. Rooted in decades of social science research across multiple disciplines, Bolman and Deal's four-frame model has continued to evolve since its conception more than 25 years ago. This new seventh edition will be updated to include additional coverage of cross-sector collaboration, generational differences, virtual environments, globalization, sustainability, and communication across cultures. The instructor's guide will be expanded to provide additional tools for the classroom, including chapter summary tip sheets, mini-assessments, Bolman and Deal podcasts, and more. These recent revisions reflect the intersection of listener recommendations and the current leadership environment, resulting in a renewed practicality and even greater alignment with everyday application.

The seventh edition combines the latest research from organizational theory, organizational behavior, psychology, sociology, political science, and more. It will be updated to include advances in the field since the sixth edition, with new case studies for each frame, and will address the COVID-19 pandemic.

A vital book

Perhaps one of the most insightful and well-supported assessments of what organizations need from managers and leaders.

A long list of things to think about

The book gives a huge list of things to think about when running an organization. It offers four frames which help a little to categorize and remember them. However, it offers little inquiry into the objective reasons and mechanisms that make one strategy better than another for a particular situation. Despite all the progress being made in the fields of psychology and sociology, the authors seem to feel that managers must approach all important problems without any a priori models or principles.

Great Textbook for Management

Narrator sounded like computer-generated voice but the content is worth listening 🎧. Great book with resounding empirical evidence!
