Methodology, theory, and knowledge in the managerial and organizational sciences : actions and consequences

Author: Eliezer Geisler
Publisher: Westport, Conn. : Quorum, 1999.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats

Geisler argues that the over-reliance on co-variation techniques and statistical methods, instead of process approach and in-depth analysis, produces meaningless knowledge in the managerial and organizational sciences, and indeed throughout all the social sciences. He offers instead a new and different approach, based on the notion of what he calls dynamic morphologies--an architecture of slicing complex phenomena.  Read more...
