It is rare to find such an accessible and readable text book. Dr Brown introduces each chapter concisely and leaves the reader in no doubt as to the learning outcomes attainable. This book is written in a clear, easy-to-follow style; case studies and models are provided throughout so that students can apply new found knowledge and understanding to realistic organisational settings. Whether you an under- or a post-graduate student of business or have merely a passing interest in organisational culture, I would recommend this book to you as an excellent read. If you are a student of business or organisation studies then I would recommend that you put this book on your shopping list as a 'must have' text.

This is an excellent read. It uses interesting case-study material to illustrate all aspects of 'organisational culture' providing sources, definitions, and applications of the 'culture' approach to interpretive organisational analysis. The language of the book is straightforward and accessible. Diagrams and models are used extremely effectively to enliven and illustrate the books' arguments. Highly recommended for BA (Business and Organisation) and MBA students requiring a concise but wide-ranging textbook to assist them with the cultural aspects of organisations. Excellent use of referencing also provides the student with a wealth of source material. This is a particularly good value textbook at the price.

Verified Purchase
Unlike other manuals on change culture that are whaffle or a marketing tool for the author (usually a consultant that has to sell his/her business) that are of little to no value, this is great. The author is clearly very experienced both with regards to the academic and practical aspects of organisational culture. The language is not patronising, the theories are very well laid out and most of all I appreciate the pragmatic approach when it comes to talk about the "how to".

It starts with a definition of organisational culture and the theory around this topic, it carries on with theories on organisational change and how organisations actually manage culture change. It carries on with organisational culture, strategy and performance and ends with some cases.

Relevant case studies, critical approach and logic lay out. It should be a must have for many senior executives that do not know how to manage cultural change and the people side of change in general. I wish it was cheaper.
