Casting the other : the production and maintenance of inequalities in work organizations by Barbara Czarniawska-Joerges( file )
13 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 1,094 libraries worldwide
"Casting the Other shows clearly the paradoxical way in which many well-intended programmes of organizational change actually work against what they seek to achieve by establishing the very practices which they hope to address. This book provides examples of the way in which power is used in the maintenance of inequality at different levels of the organization from the strategic to the local. This results in questions about how research could contribute to this process and offers a challenge to conventional approaches to diversity and its management."--Jacket

Narrating the organization : dramas of institutional identity by Barbara Czarniawska-Joerges( Book )
14 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 397 libraries worldwide
Using a narrative approach unique to organizational studies, Czarniawska employs literary devices to uncover the hidden workings of organizations. She shows how the interpretive description of organizational worlds works as a distinct genre of social analysis, and her investigations ultimately disclose the paradoxical nature of organizational life: we follow routine in order to change, and decentralize in order to control. By confronting such paradoxes, we bring crisis to existing institutions and enable them to change

A theory of organizing by Barbara Czarniawska-Joerges( Book )
39 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in English and Swedish and held by 378 libraries worldwide
"Barbara Czarniawska, renowned organization theorist, offers in A Theory of Organizing a processual view of organizing, and develops a theory based on multiple field studies and recent theoretical insights. The author demonstrates that the global economy and its ally, information technology, have paved the way for organizing across corporate and national borders. Mergers and acquisitions are now mundane events, and markets have become more virtual than ever, even as ideas that travel across the world, and are translated into local practices." "This book will challenge and stimulate organizational theoreticians and organizational practitioners. It will also prove lively reading for academics from a range of backgrounds, including sociology, business administration, and the political sciences."--Jacket

Good novels, better management : reading organizational realities by Pierre Guillet de Monthoux( Book )
28 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 262 libraries worldwide
"The collection of essays in Good Novels, Better Management demonstrates how novels are not only comparable, but often superior to the case histories used in business education. As many novelists have had personal experience of working in organizations, their work combines subjective insight with practical understanding and skill." "Fiction overcomes the drawbacks of organizational theory and economics: it combines the subjective and the objective, the fate of individuals with that of institutions, and the micro events with the macro systems." "Many parts of Europe are now in danger of splitting into societies that draw energy from dark sources obscured by a century of rationalist ideology. It is on this subject that the novels studied in this book, by authors as diverse as Zola, Conrad, Musil and Strindberg, make their greatest contribution. They describe the provenance and impact of modernity." "The essays published in this volume relate novels to economics, business administration and public management. They range across different cultures and historical periods, focusing mainly on the realist novel. At the same time, they argue that many kinds of fictional literature are of help in understanding the complexity of today's organizations."--Jacket

19 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 224 libraries worldwide
Attempts to explain how it is possible that, although the same idea travels around the globe at a high speed, local realities are still very different. This book shows what is travelling; and how it moves between countries and disciplines. Its frame of reference consists of a combination of organization theory, institutionalism and sociology
Cyberfactories : how news agencies produce news by Barbara Czarniawska-Joerges( Book )
14 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 210 libraries worldwide
Have you ever wondered how organizations decide which news is important? This insightful book portrays in detail everyday work in three news agencies: Swedish TT, Italian ANSA and the worldwide Reuters. This unique study is about organizing rather than journalism, revealing two accelerating phenomena: cybernization (machines play a more and more central role in news production) and cyborgization (people rely more and more on machines). Barbara Czarniawska reveals that technological developments lead to many unexpected consequences and complications. Cyberfactories will prove essential to researchers interested in contemporary forms of organizing, studies of technology, and media. It will also appeal to a lay reader interested in how news is produced
