The book describes the contributions that many prominent management thinkers have made to the study of organizations and how they are managed. This omnibus edition of earlier successful books covers a wide range of writers across the whole of the Twentieth Century whose writings have had a great impact on organizational thinking and managerial behaviour.Great early writers such as Henri Fayol, Frederick W. Taylor, and Max Weber are considered: as are the classical writings of Alfred D. Chandler, Peter F. Drucker and Frederick Herzberg among many others. Modern writers with great impact such as Oliver E. Williamson, Rosabeth Moss Kanter and Thomas J. Peters and Robert H. Waterman are discussed.The volume is an indispensable introduction for the busy manager to what the great writers have to say on the key managerial subjects of how to organize and motivate.
