The Kellys, in no way blithe theorists, take a troublesome examine this hard-edged challenge via positing a three-pronged version for research established upon constitution, technique, and values. They synthesize those parts below an overarching suggestion of existentialism, within which the emphasis is on a look for that means. And with that, they supply a clear-headed examine organizational behavior—its contributions to our figuring out of the way corporations paintings yet, additionally its disasters and, certainly, its common self-deceptions. A well-written, lively, far-ranging exam, not just for executives who desire the type of aid the Kellys supply of their day-by-day combats at the task, but additionally for his or her colleagues within the educational group who've their very own organizational difficulties to deal with.
