Knowledge for action : a guide to overcoming barriers to organizational change by Chris Argyris ( Book )

"The landmark book Action Science introduced a revolutionary theory of Organizational inquiry that demonstrated ways to solve problems, enhance human development and learning, and promote individual, organizational, and social change. Now, Chris Argyris translates the powerful theoretical approach presented in that work into practical advice for researchers and managers." "Knowledge for Action presents a step-by-step description of how to assess an organization's capacity to learn, analyze the data, and design and implement effective interventions that help create a more dynamic and innovative organization. Argyris demonstrates how his proven research methods produce actionable knowledge - knowledge that tests the validity of the research methods themselves when used in day-to-day operations - and calls for a genuine partnership between professionals and researchers both to implement the research properly and to test its results in everyday life." "Using a detailed case study of a professional service organization, Argyris illustrates how to reduce counterproductive politics and implement change from the top down. Drawing from interviews with and observations of top management, he shows how to identify and correct defensive routines and political problems that occur in organizations. By presenting transcripts of actual discussions, the author reveals how previously "undiscussable" problems can be resolved and how adversarial relationships can be turned into productive partnerships. He includes checklists, charts, and scoring procedures that researchers and line managers can use to make lasting changes to the status quo."--BOOK JACKET

"Argyris is one of the best known management scholars in the world - a leading light whose work has consistently addressed fundamental organizational questions, and who has provided some of the key concepts and building blocks of our understanding of organizational learning: single and double learning, theory in use, and espoused theory, amongst others." "In this book, he questions many of the assumptions of organizational theory and research, an investigation which is not confined to academic analysis. He also scrutinizes that capacity for 'unproductive reasoning' (even as self-deception and rationalization) that is common amongst managers, consultants, and indeed more generally. As well as engaging with the work of leading organizational researchers (Sennett, Gabriel, Burgelman, Czarniawska, and Grint, for example), he also ponders the work of the consultants, commentators, and accountants who endorsed Enron." "Drawing on his own wealth of experience of researching and working with organizations, this book will be a reference point for developing useful knowledge and confronting the defences and deceptions that are only too commonplace in the business and academic worlds."--BOOK JACKET
