The Social engagement of social science : a Tavistock anthology by Tavistock Institute of Human Relations( Book )

27 editions published between 1990 and 2016 in English and Italian and held by 595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

World War II brought together a group of psychiatrists and clinical and social psychologists in the British Army who developed a number of radical, action-oriented organizational innovations in social psychiatry. They became known as the "Tavistock Group," since the core members had been at the pre-war Tavistock Clinic. At the post-war Tavistock Institute of Human Relations, they developed a pioneering mode of relating theory and practice, called in these volumes "The Social Engagement of Social Science." Previous volumes presented two of three interdependent perspectives: the socio-psychological (Volume I, 1990) and the socio-technical (Volume II, 1993). The latest volume, on the socio-ecological perspective, completes the set.The socio-ecological perspective is concerned with the coevolution of systems and their environments. It considers the broader environment which shapes not only the task environments of socio-technical organizations but the institutional and cultural environment that confronts the individual.Volume III focuses on nonhierarchical forms of organization facilitating inter-organizational relations in complex and rapidly changing environments. This perspective provides a guide to institution building for the future
All teams are not created equal : how employee empowerment really works by Lyman D Ketchum( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Absenteeism, lack of commitment, lack of initiative, use of drugs and alcohol leading to decreased productivity, poor quality of products and services, and compromised safety of workers and the public; these problems are serious and particularly dangerous to organizations operating in the unforgiving world of high technology, dangerous substances, and environmental risks. How can managers improve productivity and work performance against these odds? Lyman Ketchum, known worldwide for his innovative work design of the General Foods plant in Topeka, Kansas, and Eric Trist, founder member and later chairman of the renowned Tavistock Institute, bring their experience and insight to bear on this issue as they examine organizational change and ways that managers can improve productivity and work performance. The authors diagnose the current problems facing business, then go on to identify the aspects of "good work": team structuring, employee empowerment, open communications, and active innovation. Ketchum and Trist then propose their "center out" model for organizational change, and conclude with a wealth of case studies from their own experiences

The Social Engagement of Social Science, Volume 2: A Tavistock Anthology--The Socio-Technical Perspective by E. L Trist( )

2 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

World War II brought together a group of psychiatrists and clinical and social psychologists in the British Army where they developed radical, action-oriented innovations in social psychiatry. They became known as the "Tavistock Group" since the core members had been at the pre-war Tavistock Clinic. They created the post-war Tavistock Institute of Human Relations and expanded on their wartime achievements by pioneering a new mode of relating theory and practice, called in these volumes, "The Social Engagement of Social Science."There are three perspectives: the socio-psychological, the socio-technical, and the socio-ecological. These perspectives are interdependent, yet each has its own focus and is represented in a separate volume. The Institute's dynamic social science approach to industrial problems, presented in this second volume, began with Eric Trist's coal-mining program for the development of more productive and personally satisfying self-regulating forms of work organization. The whole "Quality of Life" movement owes its theoretical and empirical basis to this pathfinding endeavor. Volume I, The Socio-Psychological Perspective, extended the object-relations approach in psychoanalysis to group, organizational, and wider social life. This extension is related to field theory, the personality/culture approach, and open systems theory. Action-oriented papers deal with key ideas in social psychiatry, varieties of group process, new paths in family studies, the dynamics of organizational change, and the unconscious in culture and society. Volume III will focus on non-hierarchical forms of organization facilitating inter-organizational relations in complex and rapidly changing environments-the socio-ecological perspective. This perspective is offered as a guide to institution building for the future
