Managing the unexpected : resilient performance in an age of uncertainty by Karl E Weick( Book )
42 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since the first edition of Managing the Unexpected was published in 2001, the unexpected has become a growing part of our everyday lives. The unexpected is often dramatic, as with hurricanes or terrorist attacks. But the unexpected can also come in more subtle forms, such as a small organizational lapse that leads to a major blunder, or an unexamined assumption that costs lives in a crisis. Why are some organizations better able than others to maintain function and structure in the face of unanticipated change' Authors Karl Weick and Kathleen Sutcliffe answer this question by pointing to high reliability organizations (HROs), such as emergency rooms in hospitals, flight operations of aircraft carriers, and firefighting units, as models to follow. These organizations have developed ways of acting and styles of learning that enable them to manage the unexpected better than other organizations. Thoroughly revised and updated, the second edition of the groundbreaking book Managing the Unexpected uses HROs as a template for any institution that wants to better organize for high reliability

Sensemaking in organizations by Karl E Weick( Book )
31 editions published between 1977 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 919 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The teaching of organization theory and the conduct of organizational research have been dominated by a focus on decision making and the conception of strategic rationality. The rational model, however, ignores the inherent complexity and ambiguity of real-world organizations and their environments. Karl Weick's new landmark volume, Sensemaking in Organizations, highlights how the "sensemaking" process - the creation of reality as an ongoing accomplishment that takes form when people make retrospective sense of the situations in which they find themselves - shapes organizational structure and behavior. Some of the topics Weick thoroughly covers are the concept, uniqueness, historical roots, varieties and occasions, general properties, and the future of sensemaking research and practice
Making sense of the organization by Karl E Weick( Book )
43 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and German and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume brings together the best-known and most influential articles on sensemaking by one of its most distinguished exponents, Karl Weick." "Weick explores the process of how organizations discover that they face important decisions. Often organizations have discussions in order to see what they think, or act in order to see what they want - before they are even aware that a decision has to be made. The effective organization is one that understands this process of sensemaking and learns to manage it with wisdom. The ways in which people do that are demonstrated in the chapters of this book."--Jacket

Primer for productivity by Harold B Pepinsky( Book )
2 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A systematic and empirical case is made for the observing and interpreting, by a spectator, of the productivity of persons who hold membership in utilitarian organizations within American society. First, a metatheory of work in organizational environments, introducing key concepts for the spectator and diferentiating between spectator and participant definitions of the work situation, is offered. This is followed by a definition of productivity, which again meaningfully differentiates between the causally textured definitions of spectators and participants and between such participant definitions as those of superordinate and subordinate persons. Testable propositions concerning work and its accomplishment are advanced. Second, a formal spectator's definition of organization, utilizing key concepts and definitions from the foregoing discussion, is presented. Third, an empirical case, which illustrates how key ideas can be applied to the study of organizations, is given. And finally, the authors pose a number of issues about organizational behavior, suggested by a comparison of their ideas with those of other investigators. (Author)
