Sensemaking in organizations by Karl E Weick( Book )

33 editions published between 1977 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 980 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

Managing the unexpected : assuring high performance in an age of complexity by Karl E Weick( Book )

13 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Managing the Unexpected shows executives and upper level managers how to manage under trying conditions. The authors reveal how HROs create a collective state of mindfulness that produces an enhanced ability to discover and correct errors before they escalate into a crisis. Through a discussion of this principle and the practices that can be used to apply it, the authors show how to anticipate and respond to threats with flexibility rather than rigidity. Their practical, solutions-oriented approach includes numerous case studies demonstrating "mindful" practices and enables readers to assess and implement mindfulness in their own organizations."--Jacket
Making sense of the organization by Karl E Weick( Book )

39 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and German and held by 523 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

Managing the unexpected : sustained performance in a complex world by Karl E Weick( Book )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Managing the Unexpected, Third Edition is a thoroughly revised text that offers an updated look at the groundbreaking ideas explored in the first and second editions. Revised to reflect events emblematic of the unique challenges that organizations have faced in recent years, including bank failures, intelligence failures, quality failures, and other organizational misfortunes, often sparked by organizational actions, this critical book focuses on why some organizations are better able to sustain high performance in the face of unanticipated change. High reliability organizations (HROs), including commercial aviation, emergency rooms, aircraft carrier flight operations, and firefighting units, are looked to as models of exceptional organizational preparedness. This essential text explains the development of unexpected events and guides you in improving your organization for more reliable performance. "Expect the unexpected" is a popular mantra for a reason: it's rooted in experience. Since the dawn of civilization, organizations have been rocked by natural disasters, civil unrest, international conflict, and other unexpected crises that impact their ability to function. Understanding how to maintain function when catastrophe strikes is key to keeping your organization afloat."--

Alcune organizzazioni, quando affrontano un cambiamento inaspettato, riescono meglio di altre a "governare l'inatteso". Come mai? Karl Weick e Kathleen Sutcliffe rispondono a questa domanda mostrando come le organizzazioni ad alta affidabilità, per esempio le squadre antincendio o i reparti delle centrali nucleari, rappresentino dei modelli da imitare. Si tratta di realtà organizzative che meglio di altre hanno sviluppato una particolare abilità nell'individuare e correggere gli errori prima che la situazione peggiori ed esploda sotto forma di crisi

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 r
