Management in Networks synopsis
Getting what you want - even if you are president - is not always easy. Almost every organization, large or small, operates between a network of competing interests.
Whether governments are applying policies, companies trying to increase profits, or even families deciding where to move the home, decisions can rarely be made in isolation from competing interests within and outside the organization. Hans de Bruen and Ernest Tin Hoffloff highlight the multi-stakeholder decision-making process in this easily accessible account.
By avoiding the simple model, the nuts and bolts of decisionmaking are revealed within the many dilemmas and tensions of work. Using a variety of illustrative examples throughout, its cognitive analysis examines how different interests can support or prevent change, and the strategies available to manage a variety of stakeholders.
This insightful text provides deep understanding and a wealth of tips. It is an invaluable reading for students working in business, management,public administration and organizational studies, as well as practitioners - or representatives - working in a range of contexts..
