Positive Organizational Scholarship: Foundations of a New Discipline
Berrett-Koehler Publishers | 2003-08 | ISBN: 1576752321 | 450 pages | CHM | 3,4 MB
This terrific book is not one of those soft and gooey books calling for people to just get along or offering what amount to incantations in order to get people to somehow coalesce into the team they aren't. Instead, it posits the notion that when an organization is in a state of a certain kind of success it is as much an exception as a business that is falling towards extinction. It asks that if there are death spirals there might also be positive spirals. Yet the bulk of business study is on the mistakes and failures of organizations and on avoiding mistakes. While it is important to avoid making mistakes that can kill your organization, does it seem likely that one can learn success only by avoiding failure? Of course not.
This book and the papers it contains are laying a foundation for scholarly study of the positive deviance of successful organizations in order to develop principles for organizations to implement to achieve success in all aspects of its organizational being. It really isn't just about the money. Although the organization has to have financial success to exist, it is also about the people who make up the organization. One of the core principles of this book is that an organization that is concerned about virtuousness is going to be more successful and more resilient than one that ignores these principles.
