But, according to Heckscher, the more successful companies are moving beyond the paternalistic exchange. He found four organizations that have transformed the old ethic of loyalty into a "professional ethic"--A new form of community built around a shared purpose and mission. Heckscher suggests that this shift, if it is to spread beyond a few hothouse examples, must be supported by fundamental changes in corporate management, government policies, and social institutions - changes as deep as those that accompanied the rise of corporate bureaucracy early in the century. White-Collar Blues offers companies guidelines for managing change and for making the new corporate culture benefit not only the corporation but also its workers. The book also tells how individuals can prepare themselves for the new realities in the workplace and maximize their chances for success, given the certainty of uncertainty
The Post-bureaucratic organization : new perspectives on organizational change( Book )

15 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and German and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is wrong with bureaucracy? What does the post-bureaucratic organization offer in the way of improvement? These and other such questions are addressed in this volume which critically examines the implications of the transformation of organizations from bureaucratic to post-bureaucratic. Beginning with a definition of the 'ideal' post-bureaucratic organization, the book then critiques some of the fundamental assumptions of bureaucratic organizations such as, the ethic of individual merit, decision-making roles and coordinated effort. It also analyzes the process of change from bureaucracy to post-bureaucracy and three alternative approaches to bureaucracy. The book concludes with case studies which illustrate both the strengths and weaknesses of post-bureaucratic organizations

Agents of change : crossing the post-industrial divide( Book )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work focuses on the transition faced by business organizations and their stakeholders as they move from protected markets to open competition, and it explores how these changes can be facilitated by outside interveners/agents. The four authors - two from Europe and two from the United States - have worked separately as consultants with leaders of many companies and unions facing these challenges, including AT & T, Lucent, Electricite de France, and the Italian State Railways (Ferrovie dello Stato).; The reader is thus afforded an unusual insight into the process of change in a large organization - not only close-up accounts of what happened, but understanding of the relationship between the researcher/consultant and different groups within the organization - senior managers, HR people, unions, and ordinary employees

Trust in a complex world. Rebuilding community by Charles C Heckscher( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can we rebuild trust in a time of increasing conflict and paralysis? Or rather, can we build trust, for the first time, wide and strong enough to bring us together to work on the complex problems of our age? Relations of trust have been weakened over the past century by a historic expansion of communication and cross-cultural interaction, and the advance of complex, fluid relationships. Now the rapid rise of the internet has accelerated the disruption. Many long for the comfort and security of relations in which one knew whom to trust and what to expect; yet at the same time they may embrace the dynamism and creativity that comes from mixing of cultures and perspectives. This book explores current conflicts and confusions of relations and identities, using both general theory and specific cases. It argues that we are at a catalyzing moment in a long transition from a community in which the prime rule was tolerance, to one with a commitment to understanding; from one where it was considered wrong to argue about cultural differences, to one where such arguments are essential. The development of this rich community is essential as well as difficult.0Complex societies produce complex challenges, from climate change to inequality to the risk-laden opportunities of bioengineering, that demand collaboration among people with widely varying views. Such brewing crises cannot be worked through without far more deliberate discussion and cooperation, and higher levels of trust, than we have today. This book explores many challenges ahead and suggests some practical directions for resolving them
