Exploring Organizational Experiences
- David Coghlan - Trinity College Dublin, Ireland
Inside Organizations: Exploring Organizational Experiences guides placement students, and any student undertaking part-time work in an organization, through 'insider inquiry', helping them to develop key reflexive and critical thinking skills for their future careers.
It encourages you to pay attention to what goes on in organizations, to question what you experience and ultimately to make sense of how organizations function, helping you to develop key reflexive and critical thinking skills for your future careers.
This book is ideal for students on programmes with a placement or internship element such as business and management, nursing and health, and education and is especially useful to those doing reflective journals and essays.
Inside Organisations is a great introduction to an undergraduate audience of some rather more complex writings. It is presented in such a way that these powerful ideas are communicated in a way that well feel straightforward to its reader, without having to delve through a multitude of classic works. If you are engaged in student placements or internships I commend it to you.
A detailed and practical review of all the different ways that insiders could and should inquire into and about their organizational experiences. The reader will find reviews of all the individual, group, organizational, strategic, and interlevel concepts and tools of analysis that have evolved in the last fifty years for making sense of the complexities of organizational life.
Accessible by students and tutors alike, this is a clear and comprehensible study of benefit to students of business and beyond.
Coghlan takes the student on a journey of the most important contributions made in the area of organizational behaviour
